Seriously, that is one of the coolest things I've seen in a long time.
This is going in my sig. :)

Saw this a few days ago.  Pretty cool stuff. :D

Kinda reminds me of Police 911, only a bit smoother (and it doesn't fuck up when someone runs into the sensor area while you're trying to play).  I hope Wii developers pay attention to this -- it could make for some pretty awesome accessories (i.e. a head-mounted sensor bar) and games (imagine playing, say, Call of Duty and being able to use your body to lean around).

Yeah, it looks like it really has potential for being insanely awesome. I could easily see a line of games taking advantage of that.

That is impressive, it would be a WHILE before anyone actually put this into good effect.

Well, as spectere mentioned Police 911, there are arcade games that use similar things, this is just a better system for doing it. I'm sure if Nintendo wanted to, they could make something that uses that sort of system right now.
