Bill Gates talks about just a few of the things on his plate, including an effort to make a series of classic physics lectures available for free over the Internet. Although it's unlikely to garner the audience of say, a sneezing panda, Gates said that putting great educational content online is an important part of getting people interested in science.  "When a lecture is presented as well as this, it draws more people in to understanding science." Gates said. Gates also took on topics such as Google's Chrome OS and what things at Microsoft still have him excited. One of those things, he said, is Project Natal, the technology shown at E3 this year that uses depth-sensing cameras to allow one's own hands to act as a video game controller. But Natal is not just for games, Gates said, noting that the technology is also being used by the Windows team, which sees uses both for controlling media at home as well as in a number of workplace scenarios.
