Project Natal

June 22, 2009

So when Microsoft demo’d the venerable Xbox 360 add-on called Project Natal at the most recent E3 on the 1st of June 2009 Dewald and I where checking out the videos and going through the whole range of emotions from awe to disbelief and finally settled on “I’ll believe it when I see it”.

If you don’t know what Project Natal is then I suggest you watch the little Youtube clip I include below, but in short its a motion sensing camera that will allow you to use your whole body as the controller to take on the Wii motion sensing technology on a whole new level (Think an eye-toy on steroids)

Anyhoo .. now that your up to speed you will appreciate this gag from the guys over at Penny Arcade. Kind of puts the whole thing into an entirely new light, altogether not so pleasant, but exactly echoes my current view on the technology. LOL
