The Unsexy Prototype Side Of Project Natal's Camera

The PR-approved product shot of Microsoft's Project Natal camera for the Xbox 360 looks sleek, sharp and maybe a little bit cute. The prototype version of the peripheral is anything but.

OK, maybe it's the tiniest bit cute, in a sad, bound for the back of a Jawa sandcrawler scrapheap kind of way, its one functioning "eye" pleading for it to find steadier footing than a Gorillapod. But there it is, fully functioning at some unnamed development studio in a prototype capacity, according to Brier Dudley's blog at the Seattle Times.

Let's convince Owen that this week's Photoshop contest needs to involve this little guy.

    Just waiting for it to move and then Judgment Day begins...

    I love the analogies you use, they completely and utterly express my thoughts aswell.

    That tripod isnt for Natal. Its a camera tripod with flexible/bendable grippy legs so you can secure your camera to a tree branch or a pole or something.

    Dave, what are you doing dave?

    Sorry, had to say it

    It looks like a killer robot with a deadly laser.

    I love them gorillapods. Just wish I had a larger one for my DSLR.

    Looks like Wall-E's before photo.

    Reminds me of Johnny 5
