RR_ShotThe camera on Microsoft’s Kinect does more than track movement. While you’re jumping to make a River Raft leap in Kinect Adventures! or driving with an invisible steering wheel in Kinect Joy Ride, it automatically takes photos of you.


A camera icon pops up on screen when a game takes a picture. Players can view digital Polaroids of them playing after a round of Rallyball or a Joy Ride race. The photos are ordinary JPGs (422 x 485 pixels), which can be shared with friends or deleted if you find them embarrassing.
