HARDWARE: Microsoft Kinect or Asus Xtion
Pro Live running Scenect 5.1.
During the CES show in January, ASUS launched WAVI Xtion, the world"'s first motion sensing input device dedicated to PC, similar to Microsoft"'s Kinect which is applied in game console.
WAVI Xtion will hit the market in October, first targeting the mainland Chinese market, which is yet to be tapped by Kinect.
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.
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.
Collaboration with AppSide has resulted in the creation of Xtion
Portal, and ASUS has also worked with Hillcrest on the highly-interactive Xtion
Asus had unveiled its motion sensing technology at CES 2011, calling the platform Xtion Pro.
For now, the Xtion Portal, just unveiled at Computex, will contain Xtion designed apps.
