The leader in 3D sensing and recognition technologies developed by PrimeSense will be incorporating it?s leading-edge 3D-sensing technology for use in ?Project Natal? being released for the Xbox 360. With so much talk about the future of gaming and it?s evolvement into our user interface connected consoles Microsoft will be leaps ahead of any gimmicky stick controllers or any hand controlled hardware controller(s).
As expressed by lan Spillinger, vice president of Xbox 360 hardware,
?We?ve seen tremendous excitement and anticipation for the arrival of ?Project Natal? this holiday, PrimeSense has delivered an important component to the technology, helping us deliver revolutionary controller-free entertainment experiences in the living room.?
Inon Beracha, chief executive officer, PrimeSense has been quoted as stating,
?PrimeSense?s technology enables a paradigm shift in the way people interact with consumer electronic devices. The engagement with Xbox 360 establishes PrimeSense?s position as a leading supplier of 3D-sensing technology, We are especially honored to have a partner like Microsoft who shares our vision for bringing innovative and engaging natural experiences to consumers.?
With these major players in software and hardware technologies, what we as gamers and journalists know right now about the integration of the ?Project Natal? tech, I can admit that most of us, only have a small idea of the true impact of true controller free virtual environment interacting. More than just a gimmick for gamers to mess with, this new UI will have a rippling effect on how we interact with our Xbox 360?s dashboard.
From scrolling through the Xbox 360 marketplace to navigating your Netflix queue as well as other social programs that are inside of the dashboard interface, I believe that those who think or doubt the whole 3D and virtual experience will be missing out on a historic change in gaming history.
Bottom line is, right now, all we can do is sit back and hope to see more details on the future of this technology when E3 2010 rolls around this June.
