Topic: Microsoft applies for patent on TV Achievements

Microsoft also envisioned using the Kinect motion-sensing camera in tandem with this system. For example, achievements may be tied to viewers performing specific actions while they watch a show. The system can make sure the user is simply in the room while it plays, or it can tell the user to hold up a specific product. The camera would then scan the item held up and reward the user with an achievement.

The patent application details a variety of possible rewards, including points for a GamerScore-like tally that is viewable by other users, new clothes and props for an avatar, virtual money for a game, or even physical rewards.

While one company tries to get you active, another one makes you sit down and get fat.

Though a temporary tattoo of the Mt.Dew logo on your butt is necessary.

Brainwashing. Achievements for wasting time is pretty crappy. I can see why people would say the name of said product to skip its commercial, but I don't think commercials ever happen on services anyway.
