PC gets motion controls
Not be outdone by the Wii console, or the other motion control technology en route to the PS3 and Xbox 360, peripherals manufacturer Razer has unveiled similar hardware for the PC at the CES show in Las Vegas.
Dubbed the Razer Sixense Ultra Precise Motion Controller, the hardware was demonstrated at the show using Left 4 Dead 2.
Looking a little like the PS3's 'wand' controllers, two sticks create movement detected by an electromagnetic transmitter, delivering gesture based controls mimicking real 3D movement on screen.
According to reports, the new technology is accurate, although it is unclear whether PC gamers will go for this approach overall, a far cry from the traditional keyboard-mouse combination.
The Razer is expected out this year, although no pricing has been offered.
