    Check out the head tracking here... definitely adds 3D without the glasses.

    Re: Future Pinball Kinect = AWESOME!

    I've thought about adding this to my virtual cabinet in the future. It's called BAM (better arcade machine). It will also work with 2 ps3 eye toy's. I believe that the player must wear a pair of glasses frames (like safety glasses) with an led hacked into them, to help with head tracking. Although it looks like you don't need them with the kinect setup.

    There's another video floating around with tron + bam that look just as cool.

    I hear that Kinect automatically makes you 23% more attractive to the opposite sex.

    The Simpsons Pinball Party + head tracking 3D BAM

    This is on the Future pinball software, I've heard the physics are greatly improved with the BAM add on although I've not tried it out. This video makes me want to give it a try.

    If video pinball continues to progress down this road, then I think in another 5-10 years this could be stunning.
