Asus WAVI Xtion Open Source Gesture Input for PCs Unveiled

Asus brings Xbox Kinect functionality to the PC.

Asus announced today at the Computex 2011 the Asus WAVI Xtion. Asus calls the WAVI Xtion the world’s first and only open-source, controller-free gesture-based device for PC. Asus partnered with PrimeSense for this new input device. The controller-free input device comes with apps that let you surf the web with gestures and Asus also launches an app store with WAVI Xtion enabled games and apps.

WAVI Xtion ships with a game bundle that includes MayaFit, Beat Booster, and DanceWall, all perfect for exercise and fun for the entire family.

We do not have a price and a release date yet for the Asus WAVI Xtion. This could be an interesting product, but to actually offer the same functionality as Microsoft's Kinect Asus would need to add voice control.
