    Actually this could be an interesting development for properly immersive gaming. Combine this with systems like TrackIR and Video iWear melded together and you have 3D vision with head tracking. Add the touch sensitive floor and you have a system capable of tracking where you move as well as where you're looking.

    The balance sensing portion should be able to pick up a change of stance (i.e. from standing to crouching and vice versa), add another sensor to track weapon movements and it could provide the mother of all FPS environments (and, incidentally, a way to get your game fix in full 3D as well as satisfy this "exercise" business people keep wittering on about without exposure to the dreaded Daystar).

    Now if only I had a few million for R & D.....

    Next. The multi-touch crapper. Tracks multiple pieces of poo through the drain and displays the journey in an infographic.

    this has been sorta done already I mean at the Great Mall in the Bay Area they had these patches where kids played games with their feet by stepping and kicking images projected on the ground, sure it wasnt as refined but still. I think this could be a great idea...

    funny how the key under his left foot doesn't light up. The damn thing is broken and nobody in the past 22 years has noticed. What else did we miss ? Did the US finally switch to metric ?

    i love the idea of this! what a machine you could use with this and just think of an entire wall as your screen to use this on. It would be like some films that have the same kind of thing, so it would be like you was in the film! How cool is that!
    i would like to see this for myself in action and give it a try to see how easy it would be to use.
