it will be quite a while before our computer is capable of thinking for itself independently (and in the process, threatening our survival) but this short video, entitled Kinect Self-Awareness Hack is a humorous take on what could be possible. probably not now, but sometime in the future. the story goes that James Tiller created a perfect Artificial Intelligence for the Kinect, after which everything went the wrong way. i shall cut to chase and not spoil the fun, so hit the jump and check out the video.
