Once calibrated, I'd expect the Kinect to be able to return to it's normal position.

This assumes two things:
1) That what it's scanning doesn't change. If one of those drawers isn't open when calibrated, but is while playing, the effect is ruined (arguably, I suppose it's peripheral vision and matter less, but still.) Seems a scan every time may be better
2) That the projector isn't built into the Kinect. This would mean it's 3 pieces of hardware, which sounds ridiculous. I'm guessing the Kinect/projector is all in 1

Which means the new Kinect needs to take much, much higher res images. It also needs to be smart. While I think processing the image after the scan can be offloaded to the Xbox, doing those effects around the TV need to be processed on the projector. Otherwise it's wasting CPU/GPU time, for something that won't be used 100% of the time or by 100% of the people. I can't see that. Better to have the Kinect be able to manipulate and generate.
