    one solution is the wireless sensor bar which is already available
    looked cool when he ran the demo
    I suspect someone will implement that soon

    looked cool. I would switch to the Wii if it was 3-d like that. No doubt. That's a major innovation.

    yeah, this is super sick. And yeah, he should have pitched this to every game developer and surely someone would have paid big.

    i'm sure, as bright as Johnny is, that he's already patented the concept/hack so if anyone trys using it, they would either a:owe him royalty or b:face litigation if they proceeded developing a concept he devised
