Microsoft Debuts Full-Body Controller-less Gaming At E3 242

quintin3265 writes "At today's Electronic Entertainment Expo press briefing, Microsoft unveiled Project Natal, a technology that eliminates the controller from gaming on the Xbox 360. In one demo, a player used her arms and legs to hit balls in an attempt to destroy a brick wall, and in another game, an employee threw virtual "paint" on a canvas to create a painting, even drawing an elephant using a silhouette feature. An accompanying video also demonstrated automatic login using facial recognition, videoconferencing with other Xbox Live members, and participating in a gameshow against another family through the Internet using speech recognition."

Google is spawning rapidly in controlling the content over the web. Chrome was phase 2 and phase 3 will be the much-rumored routers. After that money will rain. As it did for Microsoft after Win95 and Office XP.

Secondly, almost every government that allows internet reach its people have some some kind of surveillance and spy network in place. And its getting pretty obvious from the new laws that we are seeing popping up in various countries these days.
