PrimeSense announces they are partnering with ASUS to "provide controller-free interaction experiences in the living room" for PCs, saying the WAVI Xtion will debut at this week's CES and be launched during Q2 of this year. Though PrimeSense supplies 3D sensing technology for Kinect for the Xbox 360, they do not mention games, saying: "The WAVI Xtion media center for the PC leverages ultra-wide band wireless link and PrimeSense 3D sensing solution to provide controller-free interaction experiences in the living room. Users can browse multimedia content, access the Internet and social networks, and enjoy full body interaction in a more user-friendly and natural living room experience." Here's word on developer support: "In addition to WAVI Xtion, ASUS also adopts PrimeSense solutions to introduce the world’s first PC-exclusive 3D sensing professional development solution, Xtion PRO, for software developers to easily create their own gesture-based applications and software. Xtion PRO is scheduled to be commercially available in February 2011. Developers will also have the chance to sell their applications on the upcoming Xtion online Store."
