Project Natal from Microsoft


by David Allen

Microsoft has upped the stake in the games industry, as it unveils a new concept in controlling the games action on the Xbox 360 without the need for a hand held controller.

The system uses a revolutionary new 3D camera system which tracks the player’s movements through motion sensors, and projects these movements right into the game play.

This could be looked at as being similar to the Nintendo Wii player actions, but without the controllers, although this is a more sophisticated type of games control.

Basically, whatever the action the player makes, such as kicking for football, or punching as in boxing, this is replicated onto the game play.

This system, that has been named Project Natal, goes even further than anything before, with voice recognition that allows the user to speak directly to the characters in the game.
