∞ Microsoft sued over Kinect technology


“An Ohio-based firm, Impulse Technology, says that Microsoft is violating seven patents on motion tracking technology, and has decided to take things to court. Impulse alleges that they developed the technology first and rightfully own the technology thanks to patent filings.”

Looks like Apple’s not the only one in the middle of a patent war. The hardware technology used to create Kinect was originally developed by an Israeli company, so it’ll be interested to see how far Impulse Technology thinks it can go.
