Microsoft's Kinect has become quite the hacking hotbed -- the fields of medicine, music, and even shadow puppeteering have all benefitted from the peripheral's incredible versatility. And now, to the delight of home automation nerds everywhere, an enterprising young hacker has rigged a Kinect to automate the lighting in his home. By positioning the camera bar in a corner to track his movements, connecting it to the automation controller, and coding on / off commands, he's able to control the lights throughout his geektastic domicile. The automation logic then turns on the lights when entering the room, localizes them according to location, and turns them off upon leaving.

Pioneer is building more bridges to Apple products in its mainstream A/V receiver (AVR) series. Four new mainstream-series A/V receivers include the company's first three AVRs certified by Apple to connect and charge an iPad (starting at $349), first A/V receiver with Apple's Air Play wireless audio-streaming technology (starting at $549), and first model (at $549) compatible with the new iControlAV2 app, which turns iPads, iPhones and iPod Touches into full-function remotes that control all features of the company's networked A/V receivers and Blu-ray players. The company promises to include the new Apple features in the rest of the A/V receivers that it will launch in the spring and summer, citing the high percentage of Pioneer AVR owners who own Apple products. More than 62 percent of Pioneer AVR owners own an Apple product, with 49 percent owning at least three Apple products, the company said. Twenty-six percent own an iPhone.
Facebook took some air out of the Netflix balloon when it announced its own movie streaming media service Tuesday. Working with Warner Brothers Digital Distribution, Facebook is testing a video service that will let users rent movies for $3, or 30 Facebook credits. The first installment of the trial is the 2008 Batman movie The Dark Knight, and users can have access to the rental for 48 hours. The move was not welcomed by Netflix investors who see Facebook's 600 million-member social media site as a formidable challenge to company's $8-a-month video streaming efforts. Netflix shares fell more than 4% to $199.30 in early trading Tuesday. Given Facebook's immense reach and the apparent ease at which it can keep users on the site while they watch movies, the move certainly threatens the Netflix model. Not only does Facebook give the studios access to its vast membership, it can also deliver advertisers a big group of consumers with shared interests.
