While this is far from official being a part of the growing Kinect Homebrew scene, what this demonstration of a Xbox 360 Kinect, Windows Phone and Grand Theft Auto proves is that come 2012, we could be set for some truly unique game play.
The sensor here is using a custom "KinDriver" app which allows you to control the character using the phone, in addition to virtual steering with just your hands.. The fact that this as been done on the homebrew level already is quite impressive, so lets just hope some of the big game houses are working on the same. The combo of Kinect and Windows Phone could be the biggest thing for Windows Phone in 2012...if done big.

Very cool. I was hoping for some connectivity with Win7 phones and the kinect. If I can have ideas of how this would be fun I would hope devs see the possibilities
