I think this could be useful with Digital Signage. My client uses HTML to display content and is run in browser which makes it easy to design and deploy content. He says one of the challenges is getting seamless user interactivity with his browser based digital signage.

This coupled with web camera recognizing hand gestures e.g. http://hadi.io/gest.js/ could help grabbing user interaction inside his apps without too much hassle but right now its a janky solution compared to a real native kinect setup (I don't think its even possible to effectively connect to kinect in browser).




Someday soon USB devices will be accessible, thanks to the Chromebook. Not sure if that will help accessing the Kinect.
