We all agree that Nintendo’s Wii Remote design is ingenius in its effectiveness and simplicity. Many first-party titles are using it to make certain games more immersive than ever. Unfortunately, 3rd party publishers see the Wii as nothing more than shovelware bait though, since so many people own one.
It took an independent engineer though, to really think outside the box and reveal how the Wii Remote is not only an evolutionary step in gaming, but has the potential to be revolutionary.
In the video below, he explains how Desktop VR works with head tracking, making displays seem less like ‘pictures’ and more like ‘windows’ to another world. If you were like me, you were expecting to see something ‘pretty cool’ (like the PS3 controller connected to a robot). But when he actually demos his software… Prepare to pick your jaw up off the floor.
Imagine this combined with nvidia’s existing 3D glasses technology. In a driving sim. Wow!
