New Natal Demo Shows Gender Recognition

We’re all going to have to wait until E3 (or, more specifically, a couple days before E3) for Microsoft to blow the lid off of Project Natal, but in the meanwhile a new video demonstrating the technology has surfaced on the web and gives us another look at just what the motion-sensing camera is capable of (via VG247).
The video comes from a demonstration of the device during Microsoft’s Think Next event in Tel Aviv, Israel (where PrimeSense, the makers of the tech behind Natal, is based). As you can see above, it shows how Natal can detect the movements of anyone standing in front of it, including both the standard arm-flailing but also their position in physical space --whether they move left or right, or forward or backward, all with (seemingly) no noticeable lag. It also demonstrates how Natal can even detect a person’s gender, and can also detect multiple people at the same time, with people being able to jump in and out at any moment without the device skipping a beat.

It’s all pretty impressive, but exactly how any of it will actually be put to use with real games is the great question that remains unanswered. Those answers, though, will undoubtedly arrive when Microsoft holds their Natal "world premier" event on June 13 in Los Angeles.
