We've seen a lot of motion controlled gimmicks and none, to my mind, have really stuck — not even the WiiMote. Despite the its incredible sales, do you really expect to be playing Nintendo games with a controller like that in 10 years? The Myo armband is the next contender. Could this slick piece of technology be applied to games?
Who knows? All I know is that precise motion controlled gaming is still a dream for me. I think that when it happens, when it is integrated correctly and works easily, it will be something that can move the needle in terms of mainstream gaming and attracting everyone to video games.
Will that product be the Myo? I'm cynical, but at the same time I'm in awe of the technology and want to see it succeed, mainly because it looks cool.
Gizmodo Australia has a great feature on the Myo over at their site. Well worth checking out.
