Kinect to serve happy people vacation ads

A recently revealed patent application from Microsoft shows that the company may be working on bringing mood-based advertising to its Kinect peripheral for Xbox.

Microsoft suggests the technology will help advertisers more accurately target their ads, which could conceivably improve their effect.
