I resisted getting a video game system for years, because my kids spend enough time glued to the TV or playing games on the computer. I didn’t want them sitting on their butts moving nothing but their thumbs on a gaming system. But now there’s Kinect…
Oh. My. Heck. I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun this motion sensor thing is. It’s different than the other motion games, you don’t hold anything, you ARE the controller. It’s absolutely amazing how it sees your movements and, depending on the game, puts you into the screen. You definitely have to get your whole body involved. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves…

And my favorite picture….
Definitely NOT a couch potato.
