Spotted a nice surprise earlier this week – the Kinect and its SDK have won the 2012 ‘Digital’ category from the Design Museum’s Design Awards!
For those of you who haven’t heard of the Design Awards before;
“The Design Museum’s Design Awards, ‘the Oscars of the design world’, showcase the most innovative and progressive designs from around the world, spanning seven categories: Architecture, Digital, Fashion, Furniture, Graphics, Product and Transport”.
I wasn’t hugely surprised when I saw the Kinect had won, the platform and its technology is 110% wicked. It’s got more than a few applications, some of which I’ve discussed in depth (previously) – and look what Luke‘s just discovered:
How super-freaking awesome is that?! So yeah, in my opinion the Kinect is hugely deserving of the 2012 Digital Design Award. Congrats to everyone involved in making the platform what it is – and here’s to more awards in the future!
