Natal Project from Xbox - E3

Another motion detector device introduced by Xbox. The advancement of gaming console has been brought into another level. Have a look:

Touchable Holography

A group from the University of Tokyo have developed a method for adding tangibility to holograms using focussed ultrasonic waves -

This project adds tactile feedback to the hovering image in 3D free space. Tactile sensation requires contact with objects, but including a stimulator in the work space dilutes the appearance of holographic images. The Airborne Ultrasound Tactile Display solves this problem by producing tactile sensation on a user's hand without any direct contact and without diluting the quality of the holographic projection.

It's like freaking awesome man!

Imagine playing Counter Strike and felt the head-shot! XD
