Kinect may not use a physical controller, but that doesn’t completely safeguard your television against Wii Remote-style accidents.
Take the case of Consumerist columnist Phil Villarreal. In his latest blog entry, titled “Yes, I Am The First Moron To Break His TV With Kinect,” Phil reveals how he, well, is the first moron to break his TV with Kinect. I’ll let Phil take over:
“A public service announcement: Do not under any circumstances play Kinect Sports Volleyball at 1:30 a.m. while standing under a ceiling fan with a dangling chain for a light switch. You could conceivably spike it into your year-old amazing TV, causing it to die with a rainbow LCD teardrop dripping down from the impact wound.
“Plus you’ll lose the match by forfeit.”
As the guy who once smashed a very pricey lampshade in somebody else’s house with an errant Samba di Amigo maraca, I feel your pain, Phil.
