Microsoft "Digits" Experimental Interface

Engineers at Microsoft's UK division are beavering away at a potentially interesting control device that uses input from hands and fingers. The video below shows some of the possibilities. As the narrator states, the device is currently assembled from standard parts - hence the clunky appearance. If this gets past the proof of concept stage, one could envision a sleek, lightweight device like a wristband or something similar. It's sensitive enough that it can "translate" sign language. I wonder if or how this would tie into the Windows Kinect controller?
