    This makes me think that in a decade, we may have whole homes without remotes or controllers at all! Just devices like these.

    wavi xtion = way-vee x-shun ?

    What makes this special is that Asus is an outstanding and reliable motherboard producing company. If it was a no-name company I wouldn't care, but it certainly taints the company's image a little.

    Yet another source

    Looks interesting. I think that the hardware of the Kinect looks better though.

    Lenovo is backing the other one dubbed "Ebox"

    so both companies are pretty big

    I often viewed lenovo as poor man's IBM, whereas ASUS has been leading the market for PCBs...

    I thought Foxconn was the leader as it seems to always get the big corporate contracts

    This is pointless anyway, the Kinect already has some PC usage already and ToolKits are begining to appear now. I think I shall just stick to the Kinect and give Microsoft some more of my money.

    interesting to see what you can do with this as the kinect (as far as i have heard) is still annoying eg lag so unless asus (known here to make gaming pcs) makes it fun, we will have a reaction similar to mega64 dudes (esp the end... first being the mirror edge lady and now handicapped)
