Kinect is Microsoft’s largely successful motion detection technology that was mainly implemented with the gaming console Xbox to heighten entertainment experience. Now, the same innovation is being implemented in notebook computers where tasks and functions can be controlled via simple hand gestures.

Microsoft has created a prototype Asus notebooks with built-in Kinect sensors running across the top of the screen where the webcam would usually go. The sensors have facial recognition and will allow users to freely play games, open and close windows, and browse through online content without needing to touch the physical keyboard or mouse.

With voice- and gesture-based control technology becoming more popular, we could be seeing more user-intuitive gadgets and devices in the upcoming years.
