View Full Version : Natal will RULE you

From the article:

<snip> During the keynote presentation yesterday, the audience was left open-mouthed by some of Natal’s capabilities. It’s ability to capture and track movement appeared effortless. In one demonstration, a drawing was “passed” through the television screen in to the game itself, and replicated precisely.

Far and away one of the most impressive – and curiously unsettling – demonstrations came from British games maker Peter Molyneux, who showed off Milo, a sort of 21st century Pinocchio,

Milo, you see, is a little boy who, to all intents and purposes, lives inside your computer. You talk to him as you would a normal person, and he interacts with you in return, picking up everything from your movement to the emotion in your tone of voice. He will remember your face and greet you by name as you walk in to the room. <snip>

You've seen it in Sci-Fi movies for years, ladies and gentlemen...it's finally here. And yes, it works already. Completely functional motion sensor activated hands free control of a virtual environment.

This is going to change the world - and I don't just mean video games.

Anyone ever see Minority Report? The little hands to screen trick? Yea. They've done that already. Can you say fully controllable mechanical apertures hundreds of miles away? As in, robot tanks?

I know it sounds silly, but this is 100% not kidding for real.

I'm still in awe.

We try to be a little more high tech than that here in the Tech forum. :p
