E3 09: Who the f*ck is Milo?

Peter Molyneux is like gold to bloggers. He always manages to present something that is ludicrously cool in concept. Execution, well, that's often another story...

At Microsoft's E3 press conference, Peter brought the pain once more when he introduced the world to Milo, a little boy who lives inside your TV. Milo can be interacted with in a number of ways using the new NATAL input device MS introduced today. In addition to recognizing gestures by the player, he also acknowledges speech and can even divine emotions from the inflections of a human voice. 

My mind is officially blown. In the liveblog, Nick and Dale referred to it as "Seaman on crack," and that's as appropriate a description as I can come up with. Milo will be shown to people in closed-door sessions during E3 and we're going to make damn sure we get an opportunity to see what he's made of.
