Considering replacing mouse with... Hey folks, check out this piece of hardware that is planning to come out this fall for the PC & Macs--
200 times more accurate than the x-box kinect system... this looks like it has promise... to turn the space in front of you (8" cubic square of air) into a real 3d area of usable space to interact with your pc/mac...
Watch the video and let me know your thoughts... if you have ever seen the movie "Minority Report"..where Tom Cruise puts on gloves and starts moving the windows frame in the air?... kinda like that only with out the gloves...

Can't wait to see the reviews on this. It's either gonna be big or fail almost instantly.
Gonna be a niche market without a super-big company like Microsoft forcing game designers to utilize it. That sort of thing can succeed on the console. It will have less success on the PC where you are usually sitting in front of a smaller screen.
If we lose this freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment, those who had the most to lose, did the least to prevent its happening.
Well per the web site, should be due out this fall for $69.99... so hopefully we won't have to wait to long...

That's really cool except for the part where you hold your hands up in the air. Think your wrist can start to get a little sore after a long gaming session using a mouse? Try suspending your entire arm up off your desk and moving your hands and arms around for even a fraction of that time. That shit gets old really quick. I almost think a new-age Nintendo gaming glove would be better....
