    But imagine placing those ultrasound arrays like that on either side of a 3D TV, and you have physical feedback for your gaming. You shoot at the TV, and the TV shoots back [​IMG]

    Pointless post much? Couldn't you just say it's cool?


    Anyway, that aside, this is old news. I remember seeing it a year ago.

    Well, I'd say they used Wiimotes because Kinect wasn't available at the time.

    I must admit I do enjoy the arcades that have fans blowing things at me as I ski or whatever.

    I wonder if I could get one of those pain ray things (I saw a demo with a fair level of accuracy) and wire it up instead of ultrasound or whatever they end up using.

    I might also consider something like those "air blade" hand driers people seem to be enjoying of late and I have a few absorbent polymers that release their water under ultrasound as well. Find a way to crack momentum/impulse and the like and life will be good.
