András Velvárt has a post and video demonstrating the gestures in Kinect Bing Maps.

As I said in my introductory post, with the Kinect Maps solution we wanted to discover a new set of gestures to control the map. We had pretty ambitious goals that – as far as we know – no other solution has solved yet:
  • Focus on an exhibition setting instead of a productivity scenario – so, a gesture set that makes people tired is not a problem, as long as they have fun. After all, they have to give their place to the next person in line…
  • Controls must be easy to learn – either by observing the previous user, with the help of the on-screen instructions or the hostess
  • With practice, the controls must be precise enough to find any city, street or (where available) 3D building, and examine it in as much detail as the map allows
  • It must be engaging and entertaining to watch somebody else using the application
