We're not sure if this is a hint toward the final form factor, or merely the simplest conglomeration of parts available to get working Project Natal
sensors in the hands of developers, but The Seattle Times
has posted a picture today a developer prototype of the motion-sensing unit. The seems clearly slimmer in proportion than the soundbar-styled renders
we've seen thus far, but also quite a bit different than the hacked together hardware used for the Jimmy Fallon demo
of the tech. Of course, the fact that the assembly has been slapped atop a Gorillapod makes it hard to believe this is near-final hardware, but it's still fun to see this stuff as evolves toward our living rooms.
