Natal does finger tracking - imagine the possibilities

Apparently, the tech behind Microsoft's new motion-sensing Project Natal is so good, it can even track some movement of fingers. That's mighty impressive stuff. Next it will be tracking the ornaments you send crashing to the floor as you play it.

But what kind of gaming possibilities does this open up? The obvious choice is Air Guitar Hero. But that's just the tip of the iceberg...

 

The possibilities are endless...

    finger-tracking, the last piece of the puzzle needed to allow Natal-porn...

    I bet when Natal comes out that it will dissapoint

    Why do i get the feeling activision will be publishing all of those games within weeks of Natal being released?

    i can see how the finger tracking might be useful but still its strange unless in a game like ninja gaiden you get a achivement by giving it a fu

    The "Hero" joke is obvious. I expect a more creative sequel to this article, pronto! My two cents: Tony Hawk Finger Skateboarding (includes 60 dollar finger skateboard accessory).

    if xbox360 was popular in japan i see a lot of ero-games in the making..... but its not so there wont be as much.

    @Gam3rFERlife: i reckon its more a slur on activisions money whoring through crappy hero titles than the possibilities on Natal... Joke article guys!

    @wrathlord03 you hate cliffhangers but you have a picture of kratos as your avatar. were you serious about air guitar i dont think that would work and if it did it would suck. plus you can already put it on no fail mode and do whatever you want like air guitar, play along with a real guitar, or just listen to the music. rock band is better anyway.

    Well in the interests of equality I demand that Lionhead make a deaf Milo that can only be spoken to via sign language.
  • meg127 - April 8, 2010 1:29 p.m.

    that last one is game of the year material!
  • WrathLord03 - April 8, 2010 1:28 p.m.

    They should just make superhero movies out of these. And that finger tracking would also come in handy for Gun Firing Hero, Hand Grenade Pin Pulling Hero and other action packed titles by [enter horrible gaming dev here]. I'd forgive all of Activision's whoring if they give us the ability to smash a guitar using Natal. Well, not really... ReCAPTCHA: meredith and...i hate cliffhangers
  • MidSnacker - April 8, 2010 12:58 p.m.

    Wow Activision is really whoring out huh?
  • WickedSid - April 8, 2010 12:53 p.m.

    It would have been awesome(er) if Elevator Operator Hero was rated AO for Adults Only, imagine the shenanigans that you would get into... Oh my... reCaptcha: Slickest but, damn! One letter short.
