ASUS Reveals the First Motion-Sensing Experience for PC


A new approach to PC entertainment on show at CeBIT 2011. Asus' WAVI Xtion (pronounced "way-vee action") comprises two components - the WAVI wireless media streaming device, and the Xtion motion sensor. It streams high definition media wirelessly from a PC located in one room to a TV in another, while infrared gesture-based multimedia playback, games and applications introduce the first ever officially-supported motion-sensing PC interface.

WAVI Xtion integrates motion-sensing technology from PrimeSense with the ASUS Xtion Portal user interface to bring consumers closer to technology through intuitive interaction with applications. Connections to both PCs and TVs via wireless HDMI (WHDI technology) deliver transfers of high definition content such as movies, games and photos in 5GHz with a range of up to 25 meters.



Software products available on launch include MayaFit Cardio Lite, a motion-sensing fitness training game and BeatBooster, a multiplayer racing adventure game where users maneuver jet aircraft with their body movements. Enjoying PC games on the living room big screen TV is possible; the proprietary Xtion engine supports the remapping of keyboard controls into motion gestures for a variety of popular third party games.

WAVI Xtion enables a wide selection of multimedia content and entertainment applications, working with the ASUS @vibe online store to deliver music, games and apps, all through the cloud.

Developers interested in creating gesture-based PC entertainment content can make use of the ASUS Xtion PRO developer pack, Asus' first professional PC motion-sensing toolset. It opens up new opportunities for development of various applications, including games of every genre. ASUS plans to launch the Xtion Pro Developer Challenge in March, with prizes and publishing deals for developers.
