SAN FRANCISCO–The wave is one of the most universal ways of saying hello or
drawing attention, but how do you create an entire language of gestures that
people know, make sure they work with your specialized camera system, then make
it work around the world?

Microsoft faced that problem while developing the Kinect, which the
company discussed today during a session here at this year’s Game Developers
Conference, which kicks off in earnest on Wednesday.

Awesome! I actually helped doing the German localization – so if ever your Kinect doesn’t understand you talking German, you know who to blame :)
