If this explanation is correct, Sony are geniuses! Augmented Reality Controller sounds like something of the future.

Now what does Natal mean? Anyone got any acronyms for that one?

I doubt that when project natal releases that it it be called 'project xmas' M$ will probably give it a 'wii' type name like the 'zune' or something commercially hip.

As for ARC, or Augmented Reality Controller the name makes motion control seem 'grown up' unlike the word wiimote.

I don't know what MS could call Natal, I think they should just keep it as Natal because it is already quite recognisable.

The majority of the general public knows nothing about it.

What I meant is that all the media is talking about it, and it was even on Jimmy Fallon
