Skyrim Gets a Kinect Mod

Sometimes, we like to wander through a village in Skyrim, performing our Unrelenting Force Dragon Shout just for the sheer hell of it. It freaks everyone out, see? Dragon Shouts are effing cool, which is why this Kinect mod for the game is pretty exciting stuff, as not only does it enable you to move around in the game using Kinect, but it also features some smart voice recognition features.
So, if like us you've ever fancied physically shouting FUS! RO DAH! at will rather than having to hold down the right bumper like a chump, then this is the mod for you. There's intuitive gestures for movement, voice commands for navigating menus and more, all of which have been coded into the PC version by YouTube user and avid Kinect modder KniectFAAST [sic], but by far the best thing is the shouting.
There's a look at the Kinect mod in action in the trailer below, which shows how the gestural movement works, as well as the frankly awesome voice recognition. Hey, Bethesda... Once you've ironed Skyrim's myriad bugs out, how about this for an Xbox 360 add-on?! Yes? No? What do you reckon?
