Microsoft Kinect (from the Greek "κὶνησις"), initially known as Project Natal, is an accessory designed by Microsoft for the Xbox 360 and PC, sensitive to human body movement. It has been released on the market since November 18, 2010 in North America, since November 30, 2010 in Europe and from December 8, 2010 in Japan.

Unlike Sony's Nintendo and PlayStation Move Wiimote, Kinect allows the player to control the system without the need to wear or handle anything.

Although initially only for Xbox 360, as of February 1, 2012, Microsoft has made a special version available for PCs with Windows 7 and Windows 8 operating systems.
