Microsoft Developing SoundWave Depth and Motion Detection Using Doppler Effect

Although this isn't exactly Kinect related, it does fall into the niche technology that this site aims to deliver in terms of reporting on NUI advancements. Microsoft; the guys behind delivery Kinect tech to the masses, are experimenting with a new type of technology that utilizes the Doppler effect with inaudible sound waves. Think sonar for your laptop.

The tech; tentatively called SoundWave, is able to detect motion based on the Doppler effect that detects movements and gestures based on their proximity to the computer.
