The new XBOX Natal will blow your mind– here’s why

2 Comments Cool Products

project-natal-sensor-xboxEvery couple years there is a product innovation that just changes the game.  The new XBOX has no controller, so forget about buying a Nintendo Wii.  The new XBOX has facial recognition and voice recognition– so it can spot you among a crowd of players.  They show an example of a skateboarding game where the kid holds up his skate deck and it scans both sides into the game.  Watch the 3 minute video here:

I predict that:

  • Sales of keyboards and controllers will go way down.
  • Porn companies will find clever applications to hack the box.
  • You will be wasting a lot of time and money replacing your old stuff.
  • Voice and facial ID will supplement password recognition.
  • Uncle Sam and Big Brother are already excited about what is possible.

What do you think?  Are you scared?  Excited?
