Kinect Egg Hunt.
With an intuitive, gesture-based interface, you reach out in front of you
and pick up eggs and put them into your basket.
With the new force feedback glove, you feel the egg with your finger tips
but also feel the sharp pain as the chicken pecks at the back of your hand.
Inspired by the following article in today's news:
Asus is collaborating with the inventors of Kinect's motion-sensing depth
technology to bring a similar PC-based 3D experience to your living room.
The WAVI Xtion multi-media system will debut at CES this week, but won't be
commercially available until Q2 2011, Asus said in a press release.
According to Asus' statement, users will be able to browse multimedia
content, access the Internet and social networks, and enjoy full body
interaction "in a more user-friendly and natural living room experience."
Wavi Xtion uses technology from Tel Aviv-based PrimeSense, inventor of the
Immersive Natural Interaction technology used to create the Microsoft
Kinect's controller-free interaction experience. In June, PrimeSense said
that the technology may move to PCs.
"ASUS combines its wireless cross-room solution with PrimeSense's simple,
intuitive, gesture-based control technology to allow users to enjoy and
share PC content on TV with gestures," said Kent Chien, general manager of
Asus, in a statement.
"Natural Interaction's appeal to consumers means more monetization
opportunities based on personalization, various branding and advertising
programs inside applications."
At CES, Asus will also unveil Xtion Pro, a PC-exclusive 3D developers code
base for developers to create their own apps and software. It is also
creating an Xtion online store; both will launch commercially in February
