Our team realized that there's an untapped niche market in the gaming community. The majority of gamers are young adults about to begin a family and subsequently already have gaming consoles and supporting hardware around at home. We thought that using the Kinect to track the motions of babies and small children could help young parents monitor their child(ren)'s needs, even from another room. Tracking common movements of young children could help alert parents of their child's common needs and be able to respond accordingly. Our hack can be extended to include recognition of early sign language as well to further communication.
