Microsoft Studios is sponsoring this Kinect Fun Labs Challenge which encourages students to come up with Kinect ideas that can be brought to your living room. So, if you are a student and you have an idea for a Kinect gadget then this is an amazing opportunity to bring that idea to life.

Kinect Fun Labs Challenge

The Imagine Cup 2012 Kinect Fun Labs Challenge asks students to think about entertainment with a social conscience and brings the Imagine Cup into the living room. It is a unique opportunity for students to develop applications that change the world with the Fun Labs area of Xbox 360 and Xbox LIVE. The Imagine Cup Kinect Fun Labs Challenge will test your Team’s ability to build a prototype which leverages natural user interface (NUI) features such as skeletal tracking, speech recognition, face recognition, and gestures. For this Challenge, we will provide you with state-of-the-art tools to develop Kinect Fun Labs style applications on your PC. And… the top 100 Teams that advance to Round 2 will receive a free Kinect for Windows sensor!

In order to compete in this challenge you’ll first have to register and then submit a short project plan before midnight 6th March! This represents the first round out of two, with the second round taking place between 27th March and 3rd May. If you want to know more about the participation rules and additional details about what your project plan should contain then check out the source link. Good luck!
