American scientists have saved $ 100,000 using Kinect in studies of mental disorders in young children. Placing the camera Kinect across the room, doctors found that easily can observe the behavior of children at play. Because the source code of the software is publicly available, researchers were able to bring the full potential of the system back on track. The Minnesota Daily notes that health professionals are not able to monitor their wards when they are in their natural environment. The possibility of doctors is very limited, because their patients are young children. You understand that when they are something to confuse or worry, they behave quite differently. Therefore Kinect ideal for diagnosis of diseases such as obsessive-compulsive disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. According to the scientists themselves, alternative methods of observation rather expensive and thus less effective. Professor Nikolaos Papanikolopulos (Nikolaos Papanikolopoulos) initially did not believe that cheap Kinect (only $ 150) to outperform supersystem, which costs about $ 100,000. Project leader Vassilios Morellas (Vassilios Morellas) explained why Kinect ideal for their research. According to him, a variety of sensors to be attached to the children only in the way, and all attempts to understand their behavior can be reduced to nothing. Results are unreliable. Recall that in early March, Sony has introduced a technology Move. Me, with a new PlayStation 3 controller as well as Kinect, will be able to move beyond gaming. We hope that the efforts of both companies will not be in vain, and both devices will be needed
