First day back from holiday (Ibiffa!), and I’m bringing you a taste of Project Natal. It’s the X Box 360 controller-less gaming interface. Yes that’s right, controller-less! Hard to imagine (think Wii minus the controller), but this nifty little demo from Microsoft showcases it well. Not only does it recognize voices, it can also recognize faces and even facial expressions.
When the Wii entered our lives and living rooms, it completely transformed gaming into a rich and more social experience. Project Natal is another revolutionary development to the gaming industry. It starts to break down the barriers between generations (even more so than the Wii), and between gaming and entertainment.
Project Natal takes digital beyond the browser and into the real-world.
If the actual thing is even half as good as this cheesy looking demo, I’ll be after one. I wonder how much it will cost?!
