It's not often we cover consoles here at ESReality but at times you see technological advances that you simply can't help not writing about.
Project Natal, which was just announced at E3, is basically a facial, voice and motion recognition system for the XBOX 360. In one of the demonstration videos, we see a girl interacting with a digital boy on the screen, Milo. The digital boy reacts to what the girl says and they seem to be able to hold a conversation while they follow each others movements. As the video progresses, the real girl can actually see herself transmitted into the game. Then she decides to draw a picture to Milo, so she draws a picture on a piece of real paper, passes it to the TV and the boy actually grabs it, seemingly holding the picture in his hands, inside the TV..
See what Steven Spielberg calls "a historical moment".
