Micro Lab Challenge is a gadget located inside Kinect Fun Labs. It has 8 achievements worth 50.
Step 1: Run all 3 Tracks
The first step is to simply complete all 3 tracks. It is possible to complete all the achievements in one run of every track but it may prove difficult. If not, simply playing all three tracks should net you the following: Flip Out, Sharing is Caring, Completionists.
Step 2: Mop Up
In this step you will need to "mop up" the rest of the achievements. These include the speed run achievements and the miscellaneous ones. After this step you will have all achievements.
All in all this game may not be the most fun, most responsive, and easiest game to get a completion in, but the time to do so makes it all worth while. Congratulations on 50 gamerscore and another completion.
Flip Out! 5
Jump a gap with both arms straight out to your side
When you approach the first gap jump as high as you can, bend your knees and stick your arms straight out or even a little higher than straight out to make sure it registers. If you do not get it on the first jump there are plenty more in the levels to try this achievement.
Sharing is Caring! 10
Upload your video to KinectShare
After finishing the first race you are given an option to share your video. Simply select "share" instead of skipping to the next level.
Complete all 3 tracks
There are three tracks in the game. Each one will take less than 5 minutes. There is no way you can fail a level because you instantly restart at the obstacle you failed on and you have infinite tries on the puzzles.
Can't Touch This! 5
Finish a course without missing any ducks or jumps
In each track there are three oppositions. Ducks, jumps, and puzzles. For this achievement you must duck under every red bar and jump over every gap. The key to jumping the gaps is to make sure you bend your knees. You can not just hop off the ground. The key to ducking is to duck a little early. You will slide longer if you hold the crouching position. It is always a good idea to stay crouched after one in case there is another ducking spot right behind it.
Turbo Collector! 5
Grab all of the glowing orbs in a level
In each level there are turbo orbs. They are glowing green orbs that make you run faster. You will always have to jump to get them and they are scattered throughout the courses. Track one has the fewest to collect.
High Speed Racer! 5
Complete a level in less than 3 minutes and 30 seconds
Refer to "Speed Demon."
Speed Demon! 5
Complete a level in less than 3 minutes
This is by far the hardest achievement in the game and may be the only one that poses a challenge. You will need to try to not fail any obstacles, quickly complete the puzzles, and catch all the turbo orbs to boost your speed. You will also need to find almost every shortcut and remember to lean forward occasionally as it gives you a speed boost. In each area you enter that has a circular floor will have a shortcut "enter" and "exit". The "enters" have neon yellow light lining the floor and the "exits" will have neon green lights on the floor. When you are in a room with a "enter," lean toward the direction the shortcut begins. Track one is the easiest to do this on. In track 1 there are 4 shortcuts: Left, Right, Right again, then Left for the final one. There are two green orbs, one after a gap about 1/3 of the way through the level and another a little over the half way mark, you must jump to get them. There are 5 puzzles, be sure to take a little time on these so that you do not mess up, but takin more than 10 seconds will ruin your chances. You can mess up on one obstacle and miss one shortcut and still complete track one under 3 minutes. However you can gain more lead time if remember or write down the puzzles before hand so you do not waste time in x-ray vision.
Extreme Concentration! 5
Solve all puzzles in a level without failing
Each level has 4 or 5 puzzles in it. To complete a puzzle you must select the tiles in the correct order. To successfully do so, first use x-ray vision. It will show you which tiles to choose and in which order. To select a tile you must push your hand forward when its hovering over the desired tile. Be sure to hold your hands close to you so that when you are moving to the next tile you do not accidently select one. If you select a tile that is not suppose to be chosen at all, it will turn red, signifying that you have failed. If you select the right tile, but out of order, then it will also turn red and the puzzle will be failed. I suggest you go for this achievement at the same time you go for your speed run because you will have to be near perfect to complete a level in 3 minutes.
