PrimeSense plans to put motion control into everything

Jan 13 // Conrad Zimmerman    @ConradZimmerman

The Israeli company PrimeSense, who built the technology in Microsoft's Kinect motion control system, is now looking put their tech into everything they can. PrimeSense president Aviad Maizels said that the company wants to, "expand to all electronic devices in order to make them more user-friendly." Now flush with a $50 million dollar investment, the company will probably be putting this stuff into toasters before we know it.

See? Everybody laughed at the gamers when they said that this "Project Natal" stuff was just a fancy cover for SkyNet. Keep on laughing, people. I'm stocking canned goods and loading my shotgun.
