Neither cool nor possible nor sensible. Now, IV have included several new unproven peripherals into their products before (The 3D mouse thing for Multiwinia and AmbX for Defcon), but it has always been
a) with the full support of the manufacturer, both technical and marketing wise
b) on their newest game
c) making some sense.

And of course, Uplink always has been a simulation of Hacking as Hollywood sees it, and handwaving interfaces plus speech recognition is well within that realm. A spiritual successor using a Kinect 'push stuff around' interface wouldn't be the worst idea ever, but it would need to be released where it makes commercial sense (that would be the XBox currently) and redesigned from the ground up, and the interface would need to be designed with Kinect's shortcomings, mostly that the resolution simply is not high enough to pick up fingers and hand gestures.
