XBox 360 Project Natal


Project Natal is the code name for a “controller-free gaming and entertainment experience” by Microsoft for the Xbox 360 video game platform. Based on an add-on peripheral for the Xbox 360 console, it enables users to control and interact with the Xbox 360 without the need to touch a game controller through a natural user interface using gestures, spoken commands,[1] or presented objects and images. The project is aimed at broadening the Xbox 360’s audience beyond its typical gamer base.[2]

Project Natal was first announced on June 1, 2009 at E3 2009. Microsoft said that over one thousand software development kits began shipping to game developers that same day.[2] It is scheduled to be released in time for Christmas 2010[3]. Reports say that it will be released in October 2010.[4] Although official pricing has not yet been announced, one source has claimed the price will be US$149 when purchased as a standalone accessory or US$100 when purchased together with the Xbox 360 Arcade bundle[5]. Various other sources have placed it at anywhere between GB£30 (~US$50)[6] and 1,499 SEK (~US$200)[7] for the stand-alone accessory.

It is rumored that the launch of Natal will be accompanied with the release of a new Xbox 360 console (as either a new retail configuration[8][9] or a significant design revision[10]). Microsoft has dismissed the reports in public, and has repeatedly emphasized that it will be fully compatible with all Xbox 360 consoles. Microsoft indicates that it considers it to be a significant initiative, as fundamental to the Xbox brand as Xbox Live,[11] and with a launch akin to that of a new Xbox console platform.[12] Project Natal has even been referred to as a “new Xbox” by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer at a speech for the Executives’ Club of Chicago.[13][14] When asked if the introduction will extend the time before the next-generation console platform is launched (historically about 5 years between platforms),[15] Microsoft corporate vice president Shane Kim reaffirmed that the company believes that the life cycle of the Xbox 360 will last through 2015 (10 years).[11]

Natal differs from any other product on the market[16] as the software enables advanced gesture recognition, facial recognition, and voice recognition.[17] The skeletal mapping technology shown at E3 2009 was capable of simultaneously tracking up to four users for motion analysis,[11][18][17][19] with a feature extraction of 48 skeletal points on a human body at a frame rate of 30 hertz.[20][19]

Quote of the Day


“Love is like grass. If you fall on it, it may leave a stain and some temporary pain. But you’ll get over the pain, it will eventually stop hurting. Now maybe the stain ruined your favorite pair of jeans, or maybe it was nothing special that was ruined, but either way the stain remains there. And with time, it will begin to fade, but it will always be there, a permanent reminder that you, too, once fell.”

What are some guidelines for email etiquette?


Share this BLOG

Here are some suggestions for using email tactfully, gracefully, effectively, and safely:

Don’t send confidential or secret information (such as credit card information, Social Security numbers, or passwords) through email. Email messages are more like postcards than sealed letters; they pass through many computers to get to their destination.

Never use email to harass others or otherwise use it in such a way that it will bother people. Limit the number of email messages you send and save.

Don’t send email to large groups of people who might not be interested in your message. Never send spam mail, and remember that any form of chain mail is illegal.
If you do legitimately need to send email to a large number of people, place all but one of the addresses in the blind carbon copy (“Bcc:”) field of the message. If the addresses are on the “Bcc:” field rather than the “To:” or “Cc:” fields, a reply to the message will go only to the original sender, not to the entire list of addressees. When replies do go to all of the original addressees, each reply is also considered a mass mailing. For more information, see What is IU’s policy concerning mass mailing via email?

For more about how to use the “Bcc:” field, see:

In IU Webmail, what’s available under Options?
In Outlook, how do I address email?
In Outlook Express for Windows, how do I use the “Bcc…” header line when I’m sending an email message?

Pause before you send an email message you might later regret. Avoid personal attacks (in Internet parlance, flames) on others. A good general rule is: If you wouldn’t say it to a person’s face, don’t send it.

Identify yourself in the body of your message, especially if your username is something like joe29. Using a signature is one way to do this.

Include information in the subject line of your message to help recipients decide when (and whether) to read your message.

When you reply to a message, include an excerpt from that message. Your reply will make more sense. However, if the message is long, don’t excerpt the entire text, especially if all you are posting is a short response.

Body language and tone of voice don’t come across in email. Be more careful than you are in conversation. Don’t type in all capital letters; YOUR MESSAGE WILL LOOK LIKE YOU’RE SHOUTING! Some people make use of emoticons (i.e., smilies) to better convey emotion; see What do 🙂 and other emoticons mean?

Don’t send messages you wouldn’t want forwarded (at least not without a “For your eyes only” notation).

Think before you forward! Do you have the sender’s permission?

Learn the difference between replying to a whole group of users and replying to just the author of a message. Does everyone in the group need to read your response?

Transparent keyboard phone from LG


A cellphone with a transparent keyboard may be neat but somehow I don’t dig it. What about the prying eyes of people who might be seeing you tying ? The new LG-GD900 phone with improved UI and transparent keyboard was introduced as a concept at the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

LG_CITA_09_1

LG_CITA_09_2

These pictures more than tell the story. My guess is the novelty should soon wear off. Anyway if you are planning to attend the CTIA 2009 tradeshow in Las Vegas, then you will get the chance to play with this baby. That’s LG promise to you.

AVATAR.. (highest grossing movie ever)


Avatar Dethrones Titanic As Highest Grossing Movie Ever

After months of claiming the top spot at the box office week after week, James Cameron’s animated film Avatar has officially become the highest grossing movie of all time. With over $1.8 billion in ticket sales in just 39 days, the film has outshined the previous leader, Titanic, also a Jame Cameron film.

The next step for Avatar is to top Titanic’s domestic revenue record – $600.8 million, and Avatar is well on its way with $555 million in domestic revenue already. There is also a lot of buzz about possible Oscar nominations for the film, which could put Avatar in a place that no film has gone before – $2 billion in worldwide profit.

Do you think they’ll make it? Anyone reading this who HASN’T seen Avatar yet? Will you buy the DVD or do you think this is a theatre-only film because of the 3D animation?
