Kinect's multitouch inputs have already been shown off in previous videos, but it's got wider applications than grabbing and dropping: it can be used to turn surfaces into all kinds of interactive spaces.

The video below shows off its potential when coupled with a video projector, offering glimpses of its potential in public speaking, teaching, installation art, galleries and about a thousand other applications. It might not have the same "wow" factor as previous videos but it certainly gets you thinking.

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

Very cool. It seems like Kinect's potential outside of gaming far outstrips it's potential in gaming at this point.

Disco Disco!
Now implement some of this stuff into games.
Hope XBLA can build some soon.
