Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer took the stage Monday night to deliver the company's last Consumer Electronics Show (CES) keynote. He touted a few Microsoft milestones and future projects, such as Windows 8 and Windows Mobile operating system, in an interview with Ryan Seacrest of 'American Idol' and Los Angeles D.J. fame. But the real news came when talking about the future developments for Kinect, which first launched as a motion controller for the Xbox 360.
Kinect emerged as the hot topic for the night. While it allows users to interact with content on the Xbox 360, companies like Boeing, Mattel, Siemens, and Toyota are among those creating Kinect software for Windows. Ballmer said Kinect becomes available for Windows in February.
