Microsoft Unveils Hands-Free Gaming – Project Natal

Nintendo turned the intimidating video game controller into a simple swing-and-swivel device. Now, Microsoft wants to ditch the controller entirely and leave the swinging and swivelling to you. Introducing Project Natal, a revolutionary new way to play – no controller required. See a ball? Kick it, hit it, trap it or catch it. If you know how to move your hands, shake your hips or speak, you and your friends can jump into the fun – the only experience needed is life experience.

Project Natal does away with the remote control and allows human players to use their body to interact with the game – it connects to the Xbox 360 game system and tracks players’ voices and body movements and recognizes their faces.

An approximately 9-inch wide horizontal bar connected to a small circular base with a ball joint pivot, the Project Natal is designed to be placed lengthwise above or below the video display. The device features an “RGB camera, depth sensor, multi-array microphone, and custom processor running proprietary software”, providing 3D motion capture, facial and voice recognition capabilities.

Project Natal will work with all current, past and future versions of the Xbox 360, according to the speakers at the E3 press conference. But don’t get your hopes up too much because although this is an exciting announcement, Natal has no official name, price or release date. In fact, it was referred to as a concept for the future. For now, try to look for Xbox 360 games here first.
