Goodbye, webcams. It was nice knowing you. According to The Daily, laptop manufacturers may soon replace ordinary webcams with Microsoft’s Kinect sensor.

Apparently, Asus has already built a prototype. The laptop looks like a normal one (of course…), but has the three round eyes of the Kinect instead of the one tiny webcam dot on the top.

Microsoft is likely to license the technology to all of its partners. The capabilities of Kinect could easily be paired with Windows 8′s tablet-like interface.

Kinect is set to launch for PC next month.
