Project Natal is probably the number one technical advancement in computer technology this year. I know it’s not computer security related, but If you have not see it, you really need to check it out.
It pulls together full body motion capture, voice and facial recognition. This will open up a whole new area of software development. It is just mind-boggling. If you want to see more, check out the “Meet Milo” video. Project Natal should be out by the end of the year.
This will open up a whole new chapter of communicating with electronic devices and not just for the game industry. With a little imagination, you can see how this technology could be used in defense, healthcare, retail, manufacturing, etc… The possibilities are endless.
