QUOTE said:Asian research boss says that resources are already being put into the development of motion tech successor
Microsoft’s Natal is still a good seven or eight months away from launch, but a research director for the platform holder has already confirmed that work has begun on the successor to the technology.
“When we invent something first like Natal, while we have a researcher working with the product group for the first version we already have a researcher thinking about the second version down the road,” Microsoft's Research Asia department director Hsiao-Wuen Hon told The Sydney Morning Herald, as spotted by *****.
“We certainly hope we will continue to be holding that technology.”
Hon also added that Microsoft should have ideally been a leader – and not a follower – in the motion control sector, stating: “Looking back I can say we probably should have done more in the consumer space.”
