Extreme Reality Wants To Make Regular Webcams Act Like Kinects

An Israeli startup specializing in motion capture technology says it has developed a platform to give any basic webcam or laptop camera Kinect-like capabilities.  The company, called Extreme Reality, aims to give users “a console-like experience without the user having to buy additional hardware.”  So far a handful of game makers like have adopted their technology, including game giant SEGA, as well as a handful of indie houses.  After eight years of closed-door development, this breakthrough is the first taste of what Extreme Motion has been up to, but the future looks bright as there seems to be more where that came from.
