White Natal?!? *UPDATED*
Spotted in the wild of the internets we now see that there is either a mutated version of Microsofts UBER secret Project Natal, or someone got jiggy with Mr. Knit Knots and a can of beige spray paint.
I don’t who thought that a piece of white plastic like this would be a good idea (probably the same ones to make see through electronics casings) to let the cat out of the bag and show us what the ugly device now looks like under a sheen of *barf* beige. But I have one thing to say about it…
No sir, I don’t like it.
I’m hoping that this is merely a testing unit and that there will be a really sexy version coming out in the future, because let’s be real here…this thing looks like it belongs in the 386/486 era of computing…right next to my 14400 kbaud modem.
Straight from the mouth of Microsoft, the company has the following to say about the $200 beige nightmare.
“The ‘Project Natal’ sensor used for recent consumer and media demonstrations is a prototype only and does not necessarily reflect the final product. We don’t have anything to announce at this time, but stay tuned for more details.”
Here is how I read the above paragraph. We don’t have anything to say, but that’s not the final product….now that people have seen the leak and didn’t like how it looks.
