Brings new meaning to the word… January 24, 2008

Posted by jmoran21 in Uncategorized.

When I was just a tot, I got a chance to play a very high-tech virtual reality game that some guys were running in Boston’s Quincy Market. I don’t remember what it was called, but you basically climbed up onto an enclosed pedestal while wearing a bulky headset and holding something a lot like the nunchaku controller. The controller was responsible for movement and firing while the tilt of your head controlled your POV. Obviously at the time it seemed like I’d just stepped into some totally wild science fiction of the year 3000 shit. Even today, however, that sort of interaction is missing from our home computers and consoles. Would it surprise you, then, to learn that the technology for very similar (better?) experience is sitting in many homes across the globe? Behold mortals, what one determined geek can do with the Wii Remote.
