Over a year ago, the world was in awe when news surfaced about Microsoft's latest gaming project, codename NATAL. Everyone wondered what wizardry Microsoft had up their sleeves. The demo videos seemed too real to be true, only a fleeting dream in a distant future. Well guess what? That future is now! Microsoft has released the finished product called Microsoft Kinect for the Xbox 360, just in time for the holidays.
Kinect brings games to life in a way never experienced before. According to Microsoft, "You are the controller. No gadgets, no gizmos, just you!"
So teens, come experience Kinect at Darien Library in the Teen Lounge!

Everyone knows the life of any party is the music. Ever wondered what it would be like to control that experience by being the DJ? Well you don't have to wonder any more.
