Microsoft Kinect

Microsoft Kinect, formerly codenamed Project Natal, is a motion sensing camera for use with the Xbox 360 console. Doing away with physical controllers, Microsoft Kinect tracks 48 points of movement on the human body to transform gamers’ bodies into working controllers. Microsoft Kinect also has the ability to recognise individual players and their voices thanks to its built-in voice recognition. Microsoft hopes Kinect will transform the way we play games and introduce a new generation of casual gamers to the Xbox 360. Continuously updated.
