Thanks for the recommendation. I've read some of Ross Jeffries' (another pickup artist) work and seen one of his video lectures and was left feeling rather ambivalent. On the one hand he doles out some sound advice, and I managed to get laid a few weeks after putting some of it into practice. On the other hand some of the stuff he suggests is downright creepy and manipulative.

I've no problem making friends, male or female but when it comes to romance I probably come off as rather awkward and I end up psyching myself out.

If it can track 48/49 joints then it's not hard to conceive of using finger gestures instead of buttons. eg. touching your first finger to your thumb to walk, or opening a closed fist while making a throwing motion in order to trigger the game to release a ball. I guess whether this would be accurate enough depends on how good Natal is, but it's certainly not hard to think up alternatives to button presses.

The best way to accelerate a Macintoy is at 9.8 meters per second per second.
