According to the company, the interest rate on the credit facility remains fixed at 10% and no other consideration was provided to WAVI
as part of the amendment.
Xtion will hit the market in October, first targeting the mainland Chinese market, which is yet to be tapped by Kinect.
The WAVI Xtion media center for the PC leverages ultra-wide band wireless link and PrimeSense 3D sensing solution to provide controller-free interaction experiences in the living room.
In addition to WAVI Xtion, ASUS also adopts PrimeSense solutions to introduce the world's first PC-exclusive 3D sensing professional development solution, Xtion PRO, for software developers to easily create their own gesture-based applications and software.
PrimeSense and ASUS will introduce WAVI Xtion and Xtion PRO at the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), January 6-9 in Las Vegas.
Known as the 'cousin' for Microsoft's Kinect, a controller-free gaming device, due to functional similarity, WAVI Xtion uses PrimeSense's dual-camera 3D depth sensing technology to gauge shape, allowing users to control their PCs and digital home theater devices with physical motions.
Besides, the WAVI system, based on cloud computing technology, can also link computers with TVs wirelessly as a smart TV platform.
With WAVI Xtion slated for launch in the second quarter of 2011 worldwide, Asustek has also planned to open 'Xtion Online Store,' in a bid to quickly gain its global market shares by satisfying its WAVI Xtion users with more application software and related services.
Asus showed off the Xtion Browser, and announced that the WAVI
Xtion will ship with a game bundle that includes MayaFit, Beat Booster, and DanceWall.
The ASUS WAVI
Xtion device will use ultra-wide band wireless link and PrimeSense 3D sensing solution to bring controller free interaction to the PC and hey, why not motion based gaming too?
