    that’s a lot of hand swinging to move just one box.

    That is what I thought, I don’t think they developerd their application as well as Microsoft would have or did with Xbox native hand movements. In Microsoft demos, there wasn’t this much hand movement to get things done. This company surely needs to do some adjustment on their implementation.
