Microsoft has unveiled a controller-free gaming device known as 'Kinect' for Xbox 360, which was previously code-named “Project Natal.”

According to Microsoft, Kinect will completely change the gaming experience. The device contains a camera, audio sensors and motion-sensing technology which ables to track 48 movements on the human body, recognise faces and voices. The launch of Kinect took place at the Los Angeles Galen Centre and displayed how the game would be played.
