Motion Sensors to Surf the Net with Gestures

Asustek Computer and Israeli company PrimeSense, recently announced that they are researching on how users can browse the net using gestures. Gesture will also be used to access social networking sites and view videos on computers or televisions linked to a computer.

Kinect utilizes a software that identifies voice, a three-dimensional camera and depth sensors to recognize users’ gestures, voice and face even while they are walking around the room and speaking, without the need for a headset or remote. So, a person playing a video game can control the characters on the monitor simply by speaking or using hand or body movements.

Both Asus and PrimeSense will display the new technology at the International Consumer Electronics Show currently on-going in Las Vegas. The companies will incorporate motion controls into computers during Q2 of 2011 with the help of an accessory named the WAVI Xtion. The accessory will integrate PrimeSense's three- dimensional technology with Asus user interface.
