What is Project Natal?
  • Project Natal” is the code name for a revolutionary new way to play on your Xbox 360.
  • Natal is pronounced “nuh-tall”.
  • Project Natal’ represents controller-free gaming and entertainment console system.

How does it work?
  • A light pulse is first generated from an infra red light source creating a light wall.  This wall hits the 3D objects in the scene and the reflections create an imprint of the objects shape. This imprint contains all the information that will be required for the reconstruction of the scene structure. 
  • The reflected light wall carrying the imprint moves towards the camera carrying the image imprint.  But this camera does not work like an ordinary video camera.  It behaves in an on off manner as the imprint image enters the camera. 
  • The result of this gating algorithm is a gray level image with each pixel's intensity proportional to the imprint image depth.  The depth resolution can be set by setting the depth measurement window width or the camera gating intervals

The Technology behind the Natal
  • 3DV Systems' image sensing technology generates distance (depth) information for each pixel or object captured by the camera, as well as color video. The technology is based on the Time-Of-Flight (TOF) principle.
  • The Depth information is captured by emitting pulses of infra-red light to all objects in the scene and sensing the reflected light from the surface of each object. All objects in the scene are then arranged in layers according to the distance information sensed by the D pixels in the camera, providing the Depth information in real time as standard black and white video where the grey-level correlates to relative distance. Color data is provided using a normal color imaging sensor.

The technology behind the Natal (continued)
  • 3DV's core technologies are in the 3D system level, in nano-second imaging-quality shutters based on GaAs or Silicon, as well as in extremely fast and tightly controlled illumination. The technology performs superior depth imaging (depth resolution of millimeters) in real-time (60 fps or more), using little or no CPU.
