Kinect made for the Xbox 360 brings games and entertainment to life in extraordinary new ways without using a controller. Here’s an interesting news, chips are being developed by an Israeli company that power the motion-capture system in Microsoft’s Kinect for PC’s. So if you don’t have an xBox 360 / Kinect, don’t worry, these chips will be installed in gadgets that will work with PCs.
PrimeSense (creator of the chip that powers the motion-sensing part of Microsoft’s Kinect) is selling development versions of the gadget which they are calling the PrimeSensor and has the same infra-red and CMOS cameras on board to do the motion spotting and gesture capture.
Tamir Berliner – one of the founders of PrimeSense – said the company was looking to get the PrimeSensor into the hands of developers so they can bring gestured-based interfaces to many different types of devices.
