For my first stop on the show floor at Nokia World 2011 I hooked up with the Xbox crew to get a sneak peek at the soon-to-be-released game Kinectimals for Windows Phone. The game is pretty fun stuff; just like on the Xbox Kinect game, you’re tasked with raising a cub. That in itself would be a pretty cool thing to show you, but what REALLY impressed me was the fact that you can move your gaming experience back and forth between your Windows Phone and your Xbox using the game’s “Kinectivity” feature. Check out the video and you’ll see what I’m talking about:
This kind of technology is really interesting to me because it’s bringing the Xbox “living room” experience to your Phone, and the game-on-the-go Windows Phone experience to your living room. It’s one more way that Windows Phone connects you to the stuff you care about – people, social networks, documents, music, and games.
I’ll be at Nokia World all of today and tomorrow, blogging about the great stuff I find on the show floor, interviewing interesting people from both Nokia and Microsoft, and sharing as much as I can find about what the future holds for Nokia and Windows Phone. Keep an eye on the blog for new posts and follow me on Twitter for more sharable stuff from Nokia World!
