Message Text: Asus has just released the Xtion motion sensor, a device that sensors your body movements allowing you to control your PC.

The ASUS Xtion motion sensor employs sensors for precise motion controls, with an interface that enables interactive gaming, multimedia, and online browsing. Several games offer full Xtion support, with more being added. The dedicated Xtion Store further contains a variety of games and applications, plus users receive a free three-game bundle with their purchase.

Xtion works with any PC via USB, making it accessible to all desktop, notebook, and ultrabook users. The device supports push, wave, and tap gestures to allow for quick access to motion-based games as well as movies, multimedia collections, photo galleries, and web browsers.

Custom-designed Facebook, Picasa, and Flickr Xtion applications make social networking and content sharing more personal with whole-body interaction. Xtion also includes a dedicated YouTube application that uses motion sensing controls.



ASUS has teamed up with Hillcrest Labs to bring the Kylo Browser to Xtion. The gesture-based browser includes direct links to popular sites, and users can quickly input text via a virtual on-screen keyboard. It also allows all compatible web content to be zoomed in and out instantly as well as rotated with natural gesture input.

The list of compatible games include SEGA's Virtua Tennis 4, EA's Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, Street Fighter 4 by Capcom, Fruit Ninja by Halfbrick Studios, and Rovio?s world-famous Angry Birds.

Asus has also established the Xtion Store, which delivers a wide selection of items. Integrated directly into the Xtion user interface and co-developed with appside, the store features a range of entertainment offerings, with games and applications designed to make the most of whole-body interaction on PC. In addition to action gaming, content covers fitness, dance simulators, and sports titles.
