Microsoft Kinect and PACS?

Microsoft Kinect, previously known as Project Natal, has been released. It is a game controller for the x-box 360 that allows a player to control characters without the use of a controller. The system has sensors that monitor your movement and translate that into commands to move the characters.

I cant help but wonder how long it will take for someone to hack it to work on Windows and allow for doctors in theatre to scroll through images by waving their arms around. I think this would be a very useful tool which will free up the theatre doctors from having to mess around with a keyboard and mouse. (or a Wii remote)

If anyone knows about such a system please pop me a message.
