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.”
