Everyone has been buzzing about Microsoft's Project Natal, the company's endeavor to bring motion sensors to gaming. Today we learn that Natal isn't just for gaming or the Xbox 360 - it's coming to PCs too.

Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates spoke to CNet's Ina Fried this week about a world in which depth-sensing cameras such as the one Microsoft is adding to the Xbox allow people to control their PCs, game devices, and televisions. Sounds pretty neat, right?

Gates went on to give an example of this technology that Microsoft is currently working on, calling it "this depth sensor thing" that we'll see next year. However what's interesting is, according to CNet, Gates said the technology is not just for games, "but for media consumption as a whole, and even if they connect it up to Windows PCs for interacting in terms of meetings, and collaboration, and communication."

Windows 8, anyone?

For the full interview, head on over to CNet.

    This is pretty exciting if they can pull it off and if it doesn't turn into a horribly expensive novelty.
