Microsoft At Work On Natal 2
Microsofts research Asia department director Hsiao-Wuen Hon said the company is already at work on the next iteration of project Natal.
Speaking with Australia’s Sunday Morning Herald, Hon touted the company’s capacity for innovation, explaining that Natal is proof it can bring the results of its research efforts to the market.
“We are aware that we are not necessarily a media darling. People dont perceive us as innovative as we actually are. Many of them use our products but dont know it,” says Hon. “Microsoft can also move into any new area very quickly because we have this reservoir of talent.”
He explained: “And when we do invent something first like the Natal kind of scenario, while we have a researcher working with the product group for the first version, we already have a researcher thinking about the second version down the road so we certainly hope we will continue to be holding that technology. I really love what Microsoft is doing.”
