Sixense Motion Controller Hands-on at the Intel Lounge from GDC 2010

Motion controllers the next big thing in gaming

| Trade Shows News | Posted: Mar 14, 2010 8:28 am

Nicole Scott of Netbook News fame is on the floor for us at the annual Game Developers Conference 2010 in San Francisco. You can normally see Nicole shooting all of the latest netbooks and tablets over at Netbook News, so gaming is something new for her.

In our forth video from GDC 2010, Nicole visits the Intel lounge in the North Hall of the show floor and has a chat with Josh Bays from Sixense. This company is actively promoting a new motion controller technology called 'TrueMotion' that uses a low-powered 12-foot sphere magnetic field to track even the slightest movements and button pushes.

 

With a brand new Core i7 980X Alienware powered desktop system and Left 4 Dead 2 in a wicked ATI Eyefinity three monitor setup, we get a hands-on demo from Josh with their new motion controller and how it works. Cool!
