    I want one, whatever that guy produces commercially, I am buying it.
    This cheap Wii that so many people critisized(including myself) before it came out has turned into one of the best consoles ever in terms of innovation. The possabilities of this technology could revolutionise gaming.

    Isn't there a similar thing already out - TrackIR?

    That demo was awesome though. :)

    Was just thinking that If/when there was a linux version of the programs (rather than windows), I would have thought I could use my PS3 to run the programs!

    That would be the ultimate in cross console support..... :)

    The head tracking was brilliant

    This guy really gets the new technology and is doing so many interesting things, he's thinking out of the box (monitor) and turning it into a cube.

    That is very innovative, science fiction is quickly becoming science fact.

    Dam he is good. This guy is bright, wondering if google is looking into hiring hi. Or even Intel, the are trying to do something like this right with high end cameras and motion detection. Summing up this guys work all into one word would be like, "Brilliant".

    Good luck to him, and thank you youtube.com wOOt wOOt.

    I've been seeing what this guy has been doing for some time..... i really hope Nintendo uses this, it is cheap enough to be bundled with a game and it is pure awesome for hardcore gamers.... you would effectively be playing with 3 inputs.... imagine this in a game that has bullet time or time freeze.

    This guy has an interesting combination of abilities. He has the creativity to come up with the idea, the technical/programming skills to make it work, and the communication skills to present it clearly. You can make a living off of one of those skills, you can get top marks at any college with two. All three... if he's not getting job offers yet, I'll eat my hat.

    Yeah, very very impressive.
