Microsoft patents Magic Wand

Posted on Tuesday, May 19 2009 @ 02:35:29 CEST by

TechFlash spotted a patent application from Microsoft for something the company refers to as a "Magic Wand", this could be a future input system for the Xbox console. Earlier this month there was a rumor that Microsoft is preparing a full body motion control system for the Xbox 360 that uses a camera to capture your body.
The application is thick with language like that, but it boils down to a wand-like device with various built-in gizmos and sensors that can manipulate and interact with its environment, including video and holographic images, while using biometrics to connect with the user. The application uses the specific example of a wand recognizing the person holding it and displaying that person's avatar on a screen.

Among other features, the wand can communicate in "a manner similar to a cellular phone or walkie-talkie with other wands."
