    I see a lot of $$$ in this man's future. He explains it very well, too. Impressive technology, can't wait until some games utilize that!

    Wow, that's pretty awesome. Kinda like the virtual boy, except people will own it.

    I saw him present some similar work at a conference in Newport a few months ago. Definitely knows what he's talking about.

    No doubt but it's hard to say for sure.

    But Nintendo doesn't necessarily have to though. A software developer could easily get that guy on board to program something and come out with their own awesome game using that technology.

    Check out his use of a wiimote as a multi-touchscreen.

    Couldn't a game come out with their own peripheral to use that technology? The same way you need a guitar to play Guitar Hero or the Playstation Eye to play that weird card game for the PS3.

    damn, it'd be soooo freak'n cool if he could create 3d projection image to the Human eye instead of just the camera.
