A proof-of-concept prototype called the Mad Genius Motion Capture System has been rigged up to the awesome Skyrim game to provide even more realism to the act of firing your bow within the game.
The Mad Genius Motion Capture System controller shown in the video after the jump is only the proof-of-concept prototype, and the final version will be wireless, with no cables from the controller to the console.
The creators of the Mad Genius Motion Capture System explain:
“Motion gaming can be added to any game, even if the game wasn’t written for motion controller. It works with any gaming system–XBox, XBox360, PS1, PS2, PS3, Wii, Nintendo, or PC. Add motion capture to any game, even if it’s ten years old! Dig up your old games and play them again in a whole new way!”
“It is a game controller that can act as a standard controller and/or a motion sensitive controller. It has unprecedented tracking accuracy of +/- 1/100th of an inch.”
The Mad Genius Motion Capture System will be arriving on Kickstarter very soon to try and make the jump from concept to production.
