Intel Helps Users Avoid Collisions When Playing Wii Or Kinect Games
Technology that aims to improve safety in motion-controlled activities.
According to patent claims, Intel aims to increase their stake in the gaming industry with motion controller safety technology. The secured patent hopes to make motion sensor-based consoles like the Nintendo Wii or Microsoft Kinect more safe.
Intel’s patented technology includes various sensors and an Intel chip that work alongside a game console to monitor the player’s movement and their surroundings. It measures the proximity between a player and nearby objects. When a gamer is too close to something, the system will send out an audible alert, and pause the game.
