According to the European website TechRadar, the company Hitachi and Quanta has thought to have created the "Natal-killer" technology that implements all the motionless controls Natal can do, but better and more cost effective. Company Canesta is developing the technology for use for computers and laptops.
According to Canesta Chief Exec Jim Spare said "the new investment means that its
final production chips may well be used in systems as early as late
Spare also noted that Microsoft's Natal tech, developed by
3DV Systems, is based on gallium arsenide chips that are far more
expensive to make than Canesta's chips.
The three companies will use their technology for computers and laptops currently, but also made comments on integrating their technology into T.V.'s, and smartphones in the near future.
So does this mean that are future is going to be remote-free? What about other implications of the technology into cars, and space stations?
If the technology were to be mandatory into future T.V.'s, computers, and electronics by 2012 what would you think of that? Me personally I would want that, it would be pretty cool to be able to control your T.V. with your hand, but computer I would like to stick to the standard keyboard thank you.
