SQL Kinect Management Studio

SKMS - yes, I made that up. But look here to see that Microsoft has released an SDK to connect Windows machines to Kinect. It's something I've been thinking about for months. I'd like to use Kinect to administer SQL Server. I understand that many people feel compelled to say that a Kinect interface for SQL Server is a complete waste of time and totally unnecessary. But wouldn't it be fun to try SQL Kinect Management Studio? I wonder if the Kinect SDK can make calls to PowerShell.

UPDATE: As a reader commented below, SQL Kinect has already been done.

You want to be able to fly over databases, tangle with tables and run with a rush of queries in a Profiler trace? Sounds awesome ;)
