Microsoft are already planning some big things for this year's E3 event but could they unveil a motion sensor peripheral? One that captures full body movements?
A tipster has leaked some details on this 'sensor bar' for the Xbox 360, it'll even be able to detect small hand gestures and support video conferencing they say. Wii days numbered?
An image was sent along by the motion sensing source to, which can be seen below. This tech would far surpass Nintendo's own and could seriously dent the Wii if all is true.
The full body movement capture will be implementing for games and allows for real-time actions to be interpreted. This means you can kick, punch, duck, dive and jump with an in-game avatar doing all the same.
Clapping would let you 'buzz in' on quiz games (like 1 vs 100 Live?), with the sensor capable of filtering out background visuals and sounds so only the user is detected.
There's a significant chance someone has burned away a few good hours on this as an elaborate hoax, but with Microsoft's Don Mattrick claiming they're "gearing up for a big presence at E3" and how it will "completely transform how people think about home entertainment," anything's possible.
A motion-controlled revelation from the corporate giant is expected this E3, with rumours abound that Sony too have something they're keen to show. June can't get here fast enough!
