Kinect could tell how old you are?

Age restriction technology patents for Kinect appear

Patents have emerged of technology that could allow Kinect to tell the age of users and block younger gamers from accessing unsuitable content.

The way the technology works is to estimate the age of any given user by measuring their bodily proportions.

The measurements include head and shoulder width, torso length and overall height but there is also the possibility of an override for smaller adults.

The technology could automatically restrict access to TV shows, films and games based on the perceived age of the user.
