Johnny Lee now working for Microsoft to develop Xbox 360 motion controls

Nintendo did not take Jack’s advice to hire Wii hack maestro Johnny Lee. Instead, Microsoft realized a genius was in the room and hired him to work on Project Natal, the camera attachment for Xbox 360 that recognizes full boy motion. 

“I have been helping Xbox with Project Natal,” Chang said on his blog. “Speaking as someone who has been working in interface and sensing technology for nearly 10 years, this is an astonishing combination of hardware and software. The few times I’ve been able to show researchers the underlying components, their jaws drop with amazement.”

Having played Natal first hand, I can only say the same. Gotta catch a flight right now, but I’ll explain later.
