Mad Genius' Motion Capture System brings Sony's break-apart controller idea to life, and then some

Engadget - Remember that break-apart DualShock 3 idea for motion control Sony had five years ago? A new company named Mad Genius Controllers has surfaced with a working prototype that shows such a contraption working in spades. The setup uses a splittable controller and a processing unit to enable seamless motion control and spacial tracking on any title and system. Because Mad Genius doesn't use any accelerometers or cameras like the current consoles, its creator notes that accuracy of up to 1/100th of an inch is possible. (PC, PS3, Tech, Xbox 360)

They should start a Kickstarter project. I bet alot of gamers would support this.

Immersion 2.0.

Oh wow, seeing it in motion makes it a bit less ridiculous. Pretty cool stuff.

They have to work on lag and precission becouse the girl had to turn too much for comfort play.

Would love to see this done with Demons/Dark Souls :D doubt this would ever be a mainstream thing but certainly is a cool proof on concept

Best part it looked cool with the 360 controller being used now if MS would buy the company and find a way to get that retail ready i would buy it day one.

I could have sworn the last eight years was full of motion control hate and cries of 'foul' and 'gimmick', so where's all the hate now?

One minor slight and very possibly insignificant thing about this which makes it a tad different to the last 8 years of motion control it

A) Works
B) Doesn't force you to ONLY use motion control
C) Involves actual proper CORE GAMES

Still I don't see it being the next huge thing but cool concept anyway

The last 8 years of MC have worked, just not as well as anyone hoped for. Few games on either Xbox or PS have forced MC on anyone and even many Wii games had options for regular button controls, and for MANY core games there have been the inclusion of MC for those who want to use them.
I agree the idea is cool, it seems to make alot of sense and there's some cool tech behind it but I would need some of hands on time before I could say I'm excited about it or that it's not just as cumbersome as the last numerous MC endeavors.
