Microsoft offers Kinect software investment handout

Microsoft is on the hunt for ten new games and applications that make inspired use of the Kinect motion controller, and is offering investment and support to help tempt developers to take part.

Known as the Kinect Accelerator Program, those approved to take part will be given $20,000 in seed investment, as well as an Xbox development kit, office space in Washington, the Windows Kinect SDK and technical training and support.

There are only ten team spaces available, and no idea can be exclusive to Xbox 360 – Microsoft wants to build an ecosystem of successful Kinect apps across a manner of industries, from fitness to retail to computing.
