+ - New type of 3D game controller harnesses MEMS gyro->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "A new category of 3-D motion controller for gamers uses a novel new type of micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) gyroscope to track hand motions with unparalleled accuracy. By detecting the natural motions made by remote control users-- as opposed to the unnatural motions that gamers must learn to control today--the MEMS chip is sure to be incorporated in both game consoles and other consumer electronics like TV remote controls. Nintendo has already incorporated a similar MEMS gyro into its forthcoming MotionPlayer controller for the Wii, but this newer type of gyroscopic motion sensor will enable even more intuitive and agile control. Look for widespread use of the new chip within a year, and watch for copy-cat annoucements even sooner as other MEMS chip makers rush to play catch-up ball."

Whenever a system becomes completely defined, some damn fool discovers something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond recognition.
