    Xbox kinect now guards Korean borders

    Just hope the enemy doesn't try to Xbox Bing! or troll their way in

    Microsoft's Kinect Is Now Guarding the Korean Border

    North Korea and South Korea are separated by the most heavily armed border on Earth. But rest easy, there's a new guard on the lookout: Kinect.P

    Self-taught South Korean programmer Jae Kwan Ko developed a Kinect-based software system to monitor the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone), which separates the two countries. It was deployed at the border last August, but its existence wasn't made public until recently.

    Soo, they can detect the enemy if they are between 1.2m and 3.5m away? I have a pair of binoculars they can borrow, I'm sure they'd get better results...
