Last month at E3, everyone was talking about "Project Natal
", the code name for Microsof
t's controller-less camera technology for the Xbox 360 game console. When asked if the technology could come to the PC as well, Microsoft execs wouldn't commit
saying only that they were just talking about the Xbox 360's uses during E3.
Well, no less than Microsoft founder Bill Gates has blown Project Natal's Xbox 360 exclusivity. News.com reports that Gates has confirmed that they are bringing the gesture-based technology to Windows as well. Gates is quoted as saying, "Both the Xbox
guys and the Windows guys latched onto that and now even since they latched onto it the idea of how it can be used in the office is getting much more concrete, and is pretty exciting."
Office use, Bill? We are betting that when Project Natal tech does come to Windows we will see some PC game apps as well.
