Despite being a designer in training I also have a keen interest in science. Since most of my friends come from a science background, I was just the black sheep of the group.

A friend a few years ago introduced me to New Scientist magazine. While I don’t collect it on a weekly basis, I do check the website almost daily and find the technology articles most interesting.

A couple of interesting articles at the moment are:

Touch

Another interesting article is about gaming from microsoft.

Behind Microsft’s full-body gaming interface.

Quite recently at E3 microsoft revealed it’s full body gaming interface called Project Natal. For those who missed the trailer here it is:

The article from new scientist goes into details on how it works and what could be some of the flaws in Project Natal. I will hold my judgement till it comes out and I can afford it 🙂
