Microsoft Sued Over Kinect

Posted By | On 22nd, Jul. 2011 Under Industry News, News

Ohio’s Impulse Technology are claiming that Microsoft’s Kinect motion sensor infringes on seven of its patents, covering a “wide variety of games where the movement of a player is tracked in three dimensions … and certain exercise games where the motion of the player is tracked to effect movement of a virtual avatar, and the exertion of the user is monitored, including where the tracking of the player is done by use of a camera.”

Eight game makers – including EA, Sega, and Konami – have also been accused by Impulse of making exercise games, sports titles and others that violate their patents.
