As expected, Microsoft's Kinect made its second appearance on Jimmy Fallon's show earlier this evening. The first show, last year, went OK! This one does not.
First, Kudo Tsunoda may be the brains behind Kinect, but he's also a giant dork. He shouldn't be the public "face" of the thing. Second, those on-cue applauses aren't fooling anybody; this demo does little but show that in its present state, Kinect is twitchy and, even worse, laggy. Miranda Cosgrove is landing just as her avatar is taking off. Egads.
