You Can Use The Wii U’s GamePad To Make Movies, Like This Short Horror Film

Remember the Blair Witch Project? I thought that crap was real thanks to how the movie was shot with "found footage."
This short horror film is shot similarly to that, only in one continuous take using the Wii U's video call feature. The creator, Frank Howley, says it's one of the first of its kind.
I wonder if anyone else will follow suit? It's a little difficult to explain why you'd be carrying around a Wii U's tablet, so kudos to Howley for finding a way to make this work. (Wii U)

That was dreadful to be honest.

Almost as bad as that E3 video with the nerd playing ZombiU.

Cool concept
The Wii U is my personal tablet/gaming device :P.

How is the browser? I've heard it's pretty good and would love to use it like a tablet computer around the house.
@lashes2ashes I could probably use it... in the bathroom. That's the closest room to mine. I didn't realized there was no multitouch, that's a bummer.

How small is you're house? Controller only can get about 15 feet from the system. For a game system the Internet is pretty good... But if you are planing to use the gamepad for web browsing it sucks lol.., no multi touch means no zooming in or out. I would much rather use my phone or my ipad for browsing.

The web browser is awesome. i actually signed up to n4g on it now to reply.
My wii u works in eveyroom of a 3 bedroom house(Apart from the hallway way for some reason.)

I thought the browser would suck, but its rather delightful, the device dosent need multi touch you can either use the on screen icons, double tap or best of all the analog sticks to zoom. clicking on links etc is handle best by the touch screen, but you can always use the d-pad and A button to select. If you press zl and zr together while tilting you can quicky scroll down the page with the gyroscope. l button is back. guess r is forward, click the left thumb stick in removes the tool bar.
x shows a curtain on the tv hold for drum roll. you can open 6 tabs, save about 80 bookmarks per user. the game pad screen is excellent for touch input even when not using a stylus.

It's great, actually
It uses html5 (no flash support), and youtube works great (in browser, not the youtube app itself). For business purposes (stocks investments, emails, videoconferences, etc.), it does enough (maybe even a little more, depending on the variety of the consumer's tech lifestyle).

Multitouch is a nice feature, but they're button to mitigate that displeasure.
