Microsoft Kinect : Controller-Free Xbox Gaming Systems Unveiled


Microsoft took the wraps off of Microsoft Kinect (formerly known by its code name, "Project Natal"), its highly-anticipated controller-free gaming system for Xbox.

Forget memorizing button sequences, drop the joystick, and put down the Wiimote: Microsoft Kinect, which can "recognize faces, obey voice commands, and track body movements," according to the LA Times, will enable users to control their video game avatars just by moving their bodies in front of the Kinect (see video below). Kinect users will also be able to control movies just by speaking commands, such as "play" or "pause."
