E3 2010: This is your brain on Kinect [VIDEO]

Hey, have you heard the one about the gorilla puppets, upside down children, avatar spacemen, glow-in-the-dark Koosh ball and shimmering angel robes with football shoulder pads? If you've been paying any attention to E3 2010 - like, at all - then you couldn't miss the terrifying tale of Microsoft Kinect's debut (as imagined by gyrating Cirque du Soleil clown men).

But the written word cannot describe what went down last night. And neither can impressions from today, with their hours of sleep to reflect and process.

It's great to see one on one interviews taking a step into the limelight, but a few editors just standin around talking openly really is the best. Maybe get some microphones next time? And don't let the man shut you down next time!!

    Im sooo sorry that this had to happen to you guys! It should have all been children and old folks. I am happy it wasnt me though. You guys should make a video like the military makes about all the shit you guys have to suffer.
