5. 2009: mil­i­tary laser radar now: xbox Kinect sen­sors

Australian T3 - - TRAVEL -

The orig­i­nal con­cept for Kinect was based on mil­i­tary “time of flight” laser radar sys­tems, but the ver­sion that made it into liv­ing rooms was de­vel­oped by PrimeSense, a com­pany com­posed of for­mer Is­raeli mil­i­tary en­gi­neers. It uses an in­fra-red pro­jec­tor and cam­era, teamed with a microchip, to track move­ment. In a pleas­ing full cir­cle, the mil­i­tary are now in­ves­ti­gat­ing ways to utilise the new Kinect. xbox one $599, xbox.com.au
