Kinect for Christmas: future unleashed!

I play EA's NHL Slapshot for the Wii (video here) just about every day, and the whole concept of getting out of my chair and playing the game with an actual hockey stick has revolutionized my gaming experience. My stick is all taped up (I've broken it several times) and I now have an area of the dining room set aside for gameplay. So something like Microsoft's Kinect, described here by Donald Clark, is appealing in principle - and while I can't imagine playing hockey without a stick, it would be great if it incorporated bodily movements into the gameplay.
