Sixense's 3D input device is awesome

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2008/08...e-is-awesome/1

NVISION 2008: Sixense is a company that's been running for over 18 months now, but has kept itself under the radar. Its 3D input device tech was worth waiting for.

seems like there is a bunch of interesting input devices, concepts and technologies coming out in the next few years for computing

Ooh, imagine multi-touch for manipulating files on your desktop and then gaming fps with this..
I would so never leave the house if that becomes consumer level. Want.. Both.

It sounds interesting, but they need better demos. The wiimote could do the exactly same thing as this in the paintball demo (maybe not quite as accurate). And the wiimote is a very simple piece of tech. It's all about interpreting the data. Did they say what kind of data is provided by the device? More than position and acceleration?

Anybody else have the thought of using the device in this game?

To me true tactile augmentation of the digital world needs to be put in place. Why stop at a controller? Why not make gloves with electrical response feedback? Something that makes you feel the shape of whatever your fondeling? Even a simple device would be enough, cause the human brain would do the rest! Its kinda like driving a car, ever get the sensation of extension of your limbs to the rest of the car? I think a device, with more ergonomics and interface, could do such a thing.

Great tech no doubt, and perhaps it'll lead to more consumer devices that I stated above. This kinda stuff just sends my mind racing!

Hmm, this is uncannily like a Virtual Reality setup from years ago, but more 2d.

I was lucky enough, when I was in the first year of a course at Teesside Uni, to go down to a show at Wembley where they were demoing up and coming tech. There were A LOT of SGI computers running 3d apps and some very expensive gear with virtual reality helmets hooked up. I'd managed to get a go on one and, holding the controller in my hand, was able to manipulate 3d objects in a room. Pretty cool at the time (around 1996).

Well, this is very bad technology compared to the Wii controller hacks that are out there, the best one, which also features head tracking so the screen even seems 3D is this...http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~johnny/projects/wii/ <<<THIRD VIDEO!
