The Future

I caught a video showcasing a new controller idea that MS is working on called Natal. Essentially it take the Wii remote idea but now it tracks your entire body. Frankly, I think this is an awesome idea, and has implcations for use in other sections of business, not just games.

The funniest part of this entire thing is that now hard-core gamers are complaining that they don’t like it and it is too immersive (read: I cannot get my fat butt to do those cool flips and karate moves that I can do with just a little controller!). And then there is a rash of gamers complaining how the mainstream has taken their game consoles away from them. LOL Yeah, a niche market has finally gone mainstream because it is a billion dollar industry, the companies responisble have realized how much money they can make by making things everyone likes, not just a few geeks sitting in their dark basements. 😉

We are now, that much closer to a real Holodeck. Cool, people, very cool.
