By: Don Lynn | More News: Gaming | Posted: Nov 12, 2010 11:54 pm

You wouldn't think that the folks at Google would be driving people towards the competition, but engineer Matt Cutts is so stoked about the possibilities that Microsoft's Kinect has to offer that he's offering cold hard cash to the coolest hacks that he can find.

A $1000 prize is being offered to the developer who creates the best open source program or demo based around the Kinect. A second $1000 will be given to the developers who can create a simple Linux based Kinect program writing application. We've already seen several hacks around like the multitouch functions that Cameron wrote about earlier today and a nightshot function, so it will be interesting to see what people can come up with when there's cash on the line as well as internet famousness.

With removable lithium ion batteries that can be charged via AC or even USB power, these boots can provide up to 4 hours of toasty heat depending on the settings used. Sporting lightweight and waterproof materials in the rubber shell, rustproof gaiters, and Omni-Grip traction, these boots can take any terrain or job you can throw at them. They're not cheap with models starting at $325, but can you put a price on warmth while breaking your back shoveling snow?
