    GPS not available in this area
    Or maybe he's using an external thing.
    We'll just have to wait for it.

    & where'd he plug it in then ???
    - He's using a DSi so there's no Slot 2
    - Can't see it being plugged into the SD card slot
    So unless its an attachment plugged into the Slot-1 (or perhaps a flashcard with motion sensor built in), I'd like to think it's the Camera being used - which seem likely as we've seen camera's used to detect motion before

    Haha, would you believe that the DSiWare shop in Europe just got a motion sensing game that uses the camera?

    So much for Engine Software's glory.

    It's possible to do that using the camera, very smart idea.

    Thought I believe it's not as accurate as using an accelerometer.

    it would be good if the camera would be used for this kind of technologie in dsi games, because until now, the main features in games linked to the camera function are limited to 'shoot a photo of you and make it appear in the game invironment'- actions':.lol

    @imz. The guitars in that video made my ears bleed.

    OT: Interesting concept.

    I assure you, the music in game isn't nearly as exciting.
    But at least your ears won't bleed.

    if its the camera tht they are using then it begs a question tht did nintendo have this in mind? keep piracy lower but with new "hidden" functions?

    but the dsi camera is way too slow for good tracking.
