I expect the Microsoft Kinect to be partnered up with tonnes of digital billboards and installations this year, and here is just one example to help kick it all off. Autism Speaks has created a Kinect powered digital billboard featuring a life size girl who avoids eye contact no matter how hard you try.

The Kinect in this instance is used to track the head movements of the people looking into the digital billboard and continually position the child’s head and movements to avoid eye contact. Here the billboard is used at some kind of controlled event, but with a little extra crafting, it would be perfect to be installed just about anywhere. BTW the ad is getting some heat on YouTube!
