According to Xbox Live’s Major Nelson, Microsoft has gotten a lot of emails asking how Kinect is going to be incorporated into the typical living room. So, they decided to make the video above explaining the mechanics and technical side of the new motion sensor. Gathering some faces from behind the scenes of Kinect, the video explains why the sensor tilts to locate the floor, how it measures sound levels, and why a distance of six feet is optimal for playing the body controlled games.

Forget the tech stuff, I am more amazed that none of these people own a coffee table.
