The Game Runner

"Worst . . . [gasp] . . . controler . . . [wheeze] . . . ever!" ~Jeff Albertson

Ok, would you actually use this thing? I think I would if you could actually jump and back up and sidestep with your feet. As it is you just keep walking to move and press buttons to change your direction.

Well, one step closer to Virtual Reality.

Oh, check this one out:

For the next time you lose your hand in a lighsaber duel, you can just pick up one of these cyborg hands that actually move and feel using wireless "nerves" and 6 micro motors.

Ok, we have virtual reality and cyborgs, I want my flying car!

I like the idea but is the hand balanced. Think about walking around with a heavy hand it would be so hard to kill things
