Kinect's Joy Ride Works Without You Working

There's not much I can say about this. I ran across a video from a YouTuber by the name of GELTONZ who posted a gameplay clip of him playing Joy Ride for the Kinect. Normal enough, you would think, except he showed himself sitting down, keeping his hands still, not moving at all, and the game was being played for him!

It appears the game has some sort of auto-steering correct feature, I guess to tailor to all age groups, as after racing 3 laps of nearly identical racing lines, he placed third out of eight. He didn't even move! What blows me away is the fact that he has to exert no energy other than sitting down and keeping perfectly still and the game played it all for him, steering and acceleration included. Weird. Can anyone explain this?

Rumor has it that this game could be the Gran Turismo 5 killer, if the discs that shipped actually have content on it.
