It's codenamed Natal.
No controllers involved, no microphones, just the body, gestures, the software can even differentiate between male and female. This is so, so frinkin mind boggling!!! Microsoft has an SDK for developers out, but no date was mentioned as to when such a gaming system would reach market.

Its an attachment for the exsisting Xbox 360. As far as a date is concerned the best I have heard is Winter 2010.

So appearently it's not a completly new gaming system? I've been told that it's a some sort of attatchment for the Xbox 360.

I'm just so amaZZZed by how advanced the software is and that it can tell the difference between a female and a male from the skeloton.

There is a game that uses brain waves. I saw it in Hammacher Schlemmer. You move a ball through hoops and obstacles with your mind.

Oh yeah? Is this game prototype tech, or actually on the market? Do you have to wear some sort of brain wave reading device on your head?

Yeah theres a headband. Its been out for 6 months. I saw it on thinkgeek.com too

There is a few other gaming consoles out there with brainwave activation, too. I was in a mailiing list for this game that had like 16 nodes you stick to your head but I cancelled when it didn't come out at Christmas. I forgot what it was called but it was supposed to be 300 bucks. Pretty sweet.

You'll see. thinkgeek.com will take all your money and make you happy.

Check out the USB key stroke. It inserts random letters, presses enter and other stuff at random intervals. Plug it into the back of a terminal and just laugh for hours. Works best in an office environment.
