In addition, this same formulation can be used in game consoles.

The management interface consists of playing cards, embedded device, an external sensor with a camera and microphone. The camera and microphone attached to the motherboard using the USB-interface.

The sensor captures the image of the room and it creates a three-dimensional map. Then the user can control playback of TV programs or movies, just standing in front of the screen and extending a hand to him.
