Your TV could be watching you

Twice a year, tech companies descend on CableLabs’ Innovation Showcase to demo their wares for a group of cable operators. PrimeSense’s 3D sensing chip won the ops’ vote in an informal poll for best new product idea. This product lets digital devices see a 3-D view of the world. The device includes a sensor, which sees a user (including their complete surroundings), and a digital component, or “brain” which learns and understands user movement within those surroundings.
This system provides something similar to thermal images, showing how many people are in front of the TV. Do we really need cable and/or video service operators knowing this? This system can also track and react to user movements outside the computer.

    It really helps reading other people’s blogs, that way we somehow widen our perspective.
