Project Natal and 3DV unrelated, says MS

Wednesday, 3rd June 2009 12:19 GMT By Mike


Microsoft’s Shane Kim and Aaron Greenberg has said that Project Natal and the company’s recent acquisition of 3DV tech have nothing to do with each other.

Project Natal has been in development “for a long time.”

“No, we built this in house,” echoed Greenberg.

“None of those rumours did justice to what we were actually doing with Project Natal. People expected a controller you put in your hands,” Kim told VentureBeat.

“We have done a lot of work in natural user interfaces. Voice recognition is one of them. That’s why we have been able to deliver development kits for it this week.”

    I guess whichever bit of MS bought 3DTV tech wishes the Xbox boys had told them they’d invested the same thing before they went and bought it then.

    Or maybe you can just never have enough 3D TV tech.

    They probably bought them just to stop them from suing them at some point in the future.
