Nintendo Revolution Controller


The "mouse" is an extra attachment to the square remote...

If you're like me, one look and you think, "What in the world is that thing?" or "It's a freakin' TV remote control!" or "What am I supposed to do with that?"

It's actually a next-generation video game controller by Nintendo. The idea is that you hold it in your hand, wave it around in the air like a magic wand...and the game responds to you movements! Cool! But does it really work?

The hype is already building up, and there's a lot of potential for something innovative like this, but I'll have to see this for myself about a year from now...

It is essentially a wireless, square remote that works something like a computer mouse would in 3D space. Imagine sticking your hand into a virtual box and having your TV understand how it's moving in there. Now you're getting the idea.
