Microsoft is close to enhancing the Kinect with hand gesture recognition. The Kinect’s hand detection will soon allow app developers to implement features such as pinch-to-zoom in apps thanks to a new handgrip detecting capabilities.

An updated SDK, due in the coming weeks, will open this functionality up to pave the way for gestural equivalents of the mouse click.
