Expansion of Natal technology to TV


Earlier this year Microsoft unveiled the Project Natal at the E3, a gesture-recognition technology built for gamers of the Xbox 360 to give them a controller-free gaming and entertainment experience..........

       It wasn't long until Bill Gates expressed his views on this technology being incorporated into Windows PCs which would let users operate and work in the same gesture-based environment as seen in the movie 'Minority Report' for the very first time.

But that's perhaps not even a little of what Microsoft has in mind for Natal. According to Marc Whitten, the General Manager of Xbox Live, the Project Natal is expected to “be the largest leap of TV experience since the remote control".

I don't believe we are currently in the golden age of the television or the golden age of the game console or the golden age of the Internet; frankly, five years from now I don't know that you'll be able to tell the difference between those worlds.
Microsoft aims to make it easier for the users to find and share video content through their Xbox. The plan is to build a technology that is smart enough to recognize a user using appearance or voice and hence allow them to switch channels with the flick of a finger. No price of release date for ProjectNatal has been announced yet, but it will be available somewhere in the late 2010.
