Natal to Launch in October with Lag Time of 1/10s

Ross attended a celebrity reveal for Microsoft's Project Natal last night and his comments on Twitter have given away the release date. 

"OK. Before bed. Natal on Xbox impressive," said Ross. "Not quite there yet I think but they have 'til October and if they get it's the limit."

However, Ross' tweets weren't the only interesting developments when it comes to Natal. One MTV blogger says that at an event last week in New York, he managed to time how long it takes for you movement to be replicated on screen.

I had a pretty large sample size, sitting through 5 demos, capturing about 40 different movements from a variety of journalists. Across those 40 movements, the fastest life-to-screen transition was .08 seconds, while the slowest was .12 seconds. A tenth of a second was the consistent average, though.

So there you have it, a 1/10 of a second is what you can expect when it comes to lag time for Natal, and you can expect it sometime in October.
