17) Drunken Hairdresser/Surgery/Stylist game

Played Surgeon Simulator on PC? You'll know how manic and hilarious it is to attempt to suture up a victim during an insane hurricane-like situation. Now imagine you're acting out via Kinect, and it's up to you to make this person not die/look awesome in a drunken, insane scenario like that.

Applying lipstick whilst being all floofery? Awesome. Removing the pancreas with a scalpel during an earthquake? Via Kinect? YES PLAYS!

18) Air Hockey Kinect.

A couple of quid for a Kinect Air Hockey is a no-brainer. Who doesn't love air hockey tables?!

I'm very much honoured by your compliments, I usually just get insults for not insulting everyone else.

A lot of these cannot work since the kinect can't detect finger movement accurately

Having a "Psycho Mantis" (memory card reading) like event in game where the game characters use Kinect to see what you are doing.

Have Kinect scan your room and then use that as a surprise place in the game, like in an RPG "home" would be your own real life room.

Nice idea, above poster, even being able to put up posters around your game "home" that're Kinect images, etc - that would be cool, but a fully-scanned 3D representation of that environment? Super-duper cool!

20) Deflection Powers
Like in the movies when the superhero swats away bullets and projectiles with ease, Kinect would allow your inner badass to indulge your defensive prowess!

21) Mosaic Puzzler
This one requires you to make perfect squares out of randomly-shaped mosaic tiles. Like Tetris, Chime or Lumines, the next tile is random but you can view it as it appears.

The only difference here is that it's entirely played with Kinect - when a tile appears to be manipulated, you can turn or resize it using the Kinect's "stretch and twist" two-handed manipulation. Simply push it forward when you're done manipulating the tile, and it sets itself in place. Do you make a giant tile to cover more space, but potentiall screw yourself up if a more awkward shape of tile appears in the future?

23) "Tides"
A real-time strategy game where you play as the god Poseidon. Using both hands and arms, you control the oceans, creating tidal waves, typhoons and whirlpools to dispatch men and monster alike as they sail and skulk within the deep blue.
