Project Natal Scans Rooms and Adjusts Accordingly

One of the main reason our Wii didn't get much play in our previous apartment is we just didn't have the layout for it. To play almost any game required moving furniture to make room for our flailing bodies during a sweaty match of Wii Tennis. Microsoft is trying to make sure it's upcoming Project Natal for the Xbox 360 doesn't have the same problem.

Microsoft's motion sensing Xbox 360 camera, dubbed Project Natal, will automatically scan a room to determine its size and configuration and adjust its sensors accordingly.

Since some upcoming Xbox 360 games won't require a controller, instead using the Project Natal device to capture your movements and transfer them to the screen, you won't have to worry about loose nunchucks flying through the air. But since occasionally, Project Natal will have to read your full body, we have a feeling some furniture rearranging will still be in order.
