Not knowing where your keys when you are in a mad dash to get out the door is one of the most frustrating things in the world but if you had installed a Kinsight system you may have been able to avoid that irritating experience altogether.

University of Virginia computer scientists John Stankovic and Shahriar Nirjon developed the system that runs off of a series of interconnected Microsoft Kinnect cameras. Since the cameras utilize depth-sensing technology, they can monitor items that have changed locations in a home.

Each camera records motion throughout the home and then cross-references objects that have moved with a database that details what items exist in the home and where they should be -- thus helping you find misplaced items and monitor other activity taking place in your house.
