PrimeSense and Asus have teamed up to develop the WAVI Xtion, a new PC multimedia user interface device for HTPCs. The new WAVI Xtion media center for the PC utilizes ultra-wide band (UWB) wireless technology and PrimeSense 3D sensing solution to provide controller-free interaction experiences in the living room, allowing users to rowse multimedia content, access the Internet and social networks, and enjoy full body interaction in a more user-friendly and natural living room experience.
Asus will also introduce the Xtion PRO, world’s first PC-exclusive 3D sensing professional development solution, which is based on PrimeSense’s technology. It allows software developers to easily create their own gesture-based applications and software.
