    Remember Johnny Lee?

    Remember those videos of the really smart asain guy who did a lot of neat tricks with the Wii remote? A few of his videos were posted on here and people were wondering why this guy didn't work for Nintendo, but it looks like he is finally getting some publicity.

    If you haven't heard of him, here's some of his videos:

    all i can say is that he is very, very talented. Pretty clever... who woulda thought of using the head tracking idea? only there is one problem, to use head tracking to its fullest, you would needa wireless sensor bar.

    What is funny is he actually interned at Microsoft and during the development of the xbox 360 he pushed hard for the motion sensing tech. No one listened it seems. Maybe EA will snatch him up! They could actually afford to make these add ons.

    Seriously nintendo of America needs a bigger presents, maybe retro will grab him up? I wonder if he has though about getting funding to start his own studio? I mean once he makes a few games I'm sure nintendo would make him a 2nd or 1st party developer. I think he and the guys over at nintendo HQ would have some great brainstorming sessions. Nintendo is looking to do exactly what his thesis was about.

    no Dbomb3, the glasses he wears IS the sensor bar... those glasses have led bulbs and there is a remote in front of the tv aimed at him to sense his head...

    if the player needed a controller for a headtracking game (gun) then the player would hold controller #2
