Lenovo-funded Beijing Eedoo Technology has announced that its recently revealed iSec games console will incorporate body tracking software from Omek Interactive. The console, which is due for release in the second-half of 2011, will take advantage of Omek's Beckon technology, allowing it to track players' motion, similar to Microsoft's Kinect. The Beckon Development Suite will be the standard developer tool for the iSec, and is already being used by game and application developers for the console. The integrated Beckon technology means that, if the iSec were to migrate to different depth cameras for future models of the console, it would not require changes to the interface or applications. The device, which was originally slated for a release early this year, does not yet have a price point. It is positioned as a family-friendly device, with Chinese, North American and European developers reportedly working on games for the device. Earlier in the week, Eedoo announced that the console will come packaged with DepthSense motion-sensing technology and a pack-in game, both provided by motion gaming specialists SoftKinetic.
