Microsoft has announced it will be releasing technology that allows video game players to play their games sans controller.
This new technology is called â€œProject Natalâ€ and lets players use their bodies instead of hand held controllers. Microsoft Project Natal relies on a camera to capture the movements players make in a 3-dimensional space.
Implications - With the advancement of gaming technology, new ways of playing video games are surfacing. The idea of taking away controllers and using the body as a tool for gaming shows the that bridge between reality and the virtual world is shrinking. It is apparent that no one wants to sit on a couch anymore and push buttons, with consumers seeking an interactive experience.
