The Kinect boasts a controller free experience which basically translates to no peripherals for the device. However, that won’t stop some from making some kind of useless accessory for the Kinect.
As seen before the Game Boat for Kinect Adventures is probably the most useless peripheral in the history of video game accessories. It’s basically a rubber boat you stand in to use for playing Kinect Adventures rafting mini game.
The boat doesn’t add anything to the gameplay except make the area you’re playing in confined and cramped. The Kinect in fact won’t even recognize the boat and could actually make floor recognition difficult.
As reported by Stephen Totilo of Kotaku, the boat comes with a hand pump, and is even capable of floating in real water. He does warn that the boat comes with a “powerful rubbery smell.”
More than anything a device such as this boat may be a safety hazard as two people jumping up and down in a narrow rubber boat may cause the little ones to trip over the side and fall face flat.
