    Hi, im doing a business project for some coursework. And ive gotta assess the market for an area of my choice, i chose gaming. Ive done the market research, but I dont know anything about the technology, such as copywrite/plagerism laws, how much it costs to make a game consol with motion sensors, etc.

    So what do I search for if i want to make my own version of a wii or kenect? I mean even if its something simple, like a sensor on my laptop that can detect where my hand is so I dont need a mouse. What kind of people can make something like this, like if I was gonna make a job post, would I search for an engineer? How much do they usually get paid how long would it take?

    Thanks for any info.

    you'd ask an engineering consultancy company

    and you would expect to be paying a hell of a lot of money to develop something like this, think something in the range of half a billion USD

    I'm not sure about how much you'd get paid, but the time involved would depend on how advanced you want it to be.
    Such as simply following a large object moving across the camera, or if you want it to follow multiple people, and objects.
