Ed Fries joins board of 3-D sensor maker Canesta

Silicon Valley 3-D sensor maker Canesta tapped former Microsoft Game Studios boss Ed Fries to join its board of directors, the company announced today.

Canesta sensors sense users of computers, consumer electronics, robots and other devices, enabling input from gestures and motion, along the lines of the Project Natal system for the Xbox that Fries’ former employer is developing. Customers announced so far include Honda and Hitachi.

“Ed brings a new perspective and diverse experience in entertainment. He is able to advise Canesta as our game-changing technology begins appearing in 3-D interfaces,” Canesta CEO Jim Spare said in the release.
