Today I was able to connect my RSM to my Windows 7 touch pad via bluetooth hack thanks to the help from Helibot. Now I can dream bigger with some new software hacks done to the Kinect. I have experimented a bit connecting the Kinect via usb to a Windows 7 Ultimate box and KinEmote software for controlling active windows. Now For a while now I've been controling RSM wirelessly from any computer using a combination of programs and by usng kinemote I hope to fully control RSM using my body motions making it better than the movie "Surrogate" Starring Bruce Willis where you controlled your robot while in a bed/chair the lazy bums.
Kinect kit is only $150 on ebay. mYou dont need a xbox console (but why not)
