Post-NATAL: Motion-Sensing PC Games

Standard webcam + standard PC = full-body, real-time motion sensing browser game developed from military research. That's the plan behind TrendyEntertainment's VisionPlay, anyway. It claims to know where your heard, arms, legs and torso (AND NO MORE, filth-mongers) are, and maps them to in-game actions. So, in theory it's like Microsoft's Project Natal - the difference being it's not supported by high-budget games in which you hold creepy conversations with a creepily real young boy. Though, if the tech behind it takes off, there's no reason it couldn't creep into major PC games. Take that, Mister Microsoft! Well, specifically, take a cartoony tennis game.

More games to come, apparently. Gimmick or super-toy: whaddaya think?
