PrimeSense

Prime Sense’s concept is a device, which allows a computer to perceive the world in 3D and derive an understanding of the world based on sight, just the way humans do.

On March 31, 2010, PrimeSense confirmed that it was the technology behind Microsoft’s much-touted “Project Natal”.

The device includes a sensor, which sees a user (including their complete surroundings), and a digital component, or “brain” which learns and understands user movement within those surroundings.

Prime Sense’s interactive device can see, track and react to user movements outside the computer, all without change of environment or wearable equipment for the end user. The closed device is plug and play and platform independent.

The company envisages the following uses: -Interact with video games by using body movement and gestures. -Interact with digital devices using menus on a screen as opposed to mouse and keyboard -Improved video communication with for example virtual backgrounds and virtual drawing boards.
