Hah! And I thought game achievements were lame.

Lol, kind of silly but I'm not going to complain about possibly getting free stuff for watching TV.



This is actually really awesome! I watch so much tv, and feel I deserve something for it.

I guess could be fun for folks. I don't watch television at home, but I also not big on achievements/trophies so no big deal.

Im sure they will utilize Kinect 2.0 to track your actual eyes and if they are watching. If you look away for a second, you lose achievement...

I did not get the impression that Kinect 2 could do that based on the conference. I mean, it looked more accurate than Kinect 1 but nowhere near that accurate.



Pair it with Kinect, and let it monitor you. If you can stay awake through a boring show you DESERVE an achievement.



I would have the most achievements here if this were actualized and retroactive.

It actually can. Take a look at the Verge or Wired vocerage. It knows if you're "engaged", which means looking at the screena nd even if your eyes are open.
