We’ve all heard the big claims that Microsoft has been making about its upcoming Project Natal, and, up until now, there has been no better spokesperson for the product than Peter Molyneux.
Now, however, Xbox LIVE’s GM, Marc Whitten, has claimed that Natal could one day replace the humble remote control.
Read on to find out what Whitten had to say.
“With the flick of my wrist I can change a channel,” Whitten said. “With the power of my voice I can start a movie.”
“Laughter is an input. Yelling at the TV when I know an answer on Jeopardy is an input. Attention is an input. The number of people in the room at one time is an input.”
“I believe that this will be the largest leap of TV experience since the remote control.”
Plenty of sound bites, certainly, but if properly incorporated, this type of technology could easily become integrated into everyday entertainment.
