Natal Wins Time Magazine Honors
Microsofts upcoming Project Natal motion control system has been named to Time Magazines list of the 50 Best Inventions of 2009, beating out such strong competitors as the AIDS vaccine and teleportation to come in at a respectable No. 5.
Despite the fact that Natal and its 14 launch games wont be available until November 2010, Time gushes about the systems ability to remove the barrier between people and software:
"Project Natal uses several cameras, plus a highly specialized microphone and a lot of fancy software, to track the gamers body and interpret his or her voice. You move your hand, and the Master Chief (or whoever) moves his hand. Its that simple. And that cool."
