Microsoft XBox 360: Meet Milo

In a previous post I mentioned about Microsoft's Project Natal for the XBox 360, their answer to the Wii.

One of the first applications (game?) for the new system has been developed by a UK company. They presented it at a recent developers conference "behind closed doors" but it seems that "somebody" had a camera and leaked?

Milo is an interactive, life-like boy who can recognize and display emotions by using face recognition and visual cues of body language in addition to his ability to recognize voice.

I've embedded the video below. I think it's worth the download wait and is quite good resolution so you can expand it to fill your whole screen.

Meet Milo

Whaddya think?

Interested in learning something new?

Some time ago I got to visit "Biosphere II" near Tucson Arizona with friends. I then read several books about the experience. Recently one of the eight participants, Jane Poynter, spoke at TED and her enlightening description is here: Life in Biosphere 2.
