Microsoft Kinect

Last week, we told you about Kinect demos at select Macy’s Stores (they were yesterday…did you go?), and now Microsoft is taking their motion sensing unit out on the road with the “Microsoft Kinect Mobile Tour.” There will be  traveling demos on both the east and west coast of every Kinect launch game, with all locations getting the Kinect for at least a couple days. So go try it out, and see whether plunking down $200 for the console and animal petting game come November is worth it. Here’s the full list of dates:
