    An Israel tech company, 3DV Systems, has annouced ZCam. This PC camera can detect user’s gestures and the player can control in-game actions without using additional peripheral. Imagine playing Wii games without the Wiimote.

    Using only hand gestures, Klier (3DV CEO) demonstrated controlling an on-screen aeroplane by simply moving his hands from side-to-side, and by raising his thumbs to activate machine-guns.

    Sounds exactly like the eyetoy. Where has Israel been in the technology race? It has been done.

    The eyetoy could NOT do that.

    The next-gen one probably can though.

    True, but imagine how silly one would look flying a "plane" on the screen. I'd think someone had finally gone nuts if I saw them in a chair pretending to fly!

    No, it's probably not that interactive but its the same principle (Video capture for movement).
