In this video Microsoft Research shows off an evolution of the Kinect for Xbox 360. We see how they've enabled hand-gesture recognition which then enables the development of a handgrip detector which allows for multi-touch such as pinching to zoom.

A machine-learning project uses a large, varied set of images of people's hands to train Kinect to determine if a hand is open or closed.
