Next Kinect Fun Labs Gadget Announced

By Rebecca Smith,
Microsoft has announced another Kinect Fun Labs gadget that will be heading our way fairly soon. Allow me to introduce Air Band.


Those of you with a tendency to play air guitar through some of the best guitar solos known to man (or in my case, air drums) will be pleased to know that you can now gain some gamerscore for doing so. According to Major Nelson, the gadget "introduces new Augmented Reality technology to Kinect and places you on stage as the star of your living room with a guitar, drums or keyboard".

There hasn't been any information yet on the clear winner of the Kinect Fun Labs election, Keyboard Anywhere. However, when it does arrive, players will be able to play imaginary keyboards with both their hands and their feet.

Air Band is due to be released on August 22nd. A price is yet to be confirmed.
