What will Microsoft call Project Natal?

And, more importantly, we want to know what you'd call it
We're blown away by the potential of Microsoft's Project Natal tech for the Xbox 360, but our minds quickly wandered. What would Microsoft call the final release?
Our friends at Redmond hardly have the best pedigree when it comes to naming new releases and Microsoft's long-meeting and focus group naming reputation has hardly been helped by the launch of Bing.
So we decided to dream up some amusing final release names for Project Natal and got some help from our friends in the Twittersphere. See what you think and then send us your own in the comments, @techradar – oh, and if you tweet them, add the hashtag #ProjectNatalFinalName
