    they need to make it so its possible to clip it to the top of your screen or something... my screens only like 1cm thick at the top.

    First 3D, now more motion sensitive junk... waste of money imo.

    Looks promising but it would have to be cheaper than the kinect to succeed since you buy the kinect just about anywhere.

    Motion sensor is the mouse of the future for the computer along with touchscreen imo.

    why would you need a touchscreen when you already have motion sensing?

    touch screen is more accurate for fine movement and hitting specific buttons on the screen. Maybe I'm wrong but I cant imagine playing an rts or city building game on motion sensor.

    motion sensing is good when you're not close to the screen or when your hands are dirty eg cooking, working in the garage are some ideal uses I can think for it.

    I wonder whether this is doing software processing (like Kinect), or whether they've actually paid a bit extra for the PrimeSense processing hardware to ease the load on the CPU. If they haven't included the hardware, using it on an Atom-based HTPC might be somewhat difficult.

    Kinect on 360 is ok, it still has alot of improvments to become better meaning the responsiveness of motion detection, it seems a tad bit laggy for me. Hope the pc one is more responsive for those who get one.
