A company called PrimeSense has announced that it will be supplying 3D sensing technology for the Microsoft Project Natal system for the Xbox 360. The Project Natal system will allow the player to control an on screen avatar without a controller.

The system uses a motion sensing camera and other sensors to tell where the player is and what they are doing and translate that activity to the screen. That means to kick a ball in a soccer game, you simply kick, and the gamer sense it. It's very cool tech.

“We’ve seen tremendous excitement and anticipation for the arrival of ‘Project Natal’ this holiday,” said Ilan Spillinger, vice president of Xbox 360 hardware. “PrimeSense has delivered an important component to the technology, helping us deliver revolutionary controller-free entertainment experiences in the living room.”
