Window into the Potential Future of Video Games

The video game conference, E3, was this week. While there was the standard "check-out-version-5-of-the-same-crap-but-looks-better" stuff, there was a couple intriguing presentations. One I will highlight is something called "Project Natal", from Microsoft (for xbox).

I highly recommend watching this trailer all the way through. Some might say "oh, that's Wii without the remote", but I think there is a lot more going on. It's a bit campy, but the technology involved is wild, and could represent an interesting new paradigm in interacting with many forms of electronic devices.
