Microsoft Xbox 360 press guru Major Nelson (also known as Larry Hyrb) has announced that a new update to Netflix, Inc. (Public, NASDAQ:NFLX) adds Kinect support, allowing you to wade through the movie streaming service with your hands and/or voice.
According to Major:
You’ll be able to select movies and TV shows recommended for you by Netflix, as well as play, pause, fast forward and rewind using gesture or voice. Kinect support for Netflix on Xbox LIVE will also feature an exclusive new recommendation channel that is controller-free and uses a smart engine to suggest movies or TV shows based on your viewing habits and instant queue.
We’re still waiting for the Kinect app that allows us to live a Minority Report life.
