Adding Another Dimension to Your Monitor

You’ve been staring at those computer and TV screens for ages. Isn’t it about time they started looking back at you?

As soon as the wiimote changed the view of game interfacing, more changes were bound to follow. Now, the wiimote can be used to perform a function called "head tracking.

Basically, the wiimote uses infrared signals to follow the motion of your head. The screen then adjusts to give you a new perspective of the scene you were looking at. The result? A real three-dimensional interface to the gaming system.

In order for this technology to be made use of, the software on your computer or game system needs further development. But expect to see this technology take off soon as more software developers get on board. Once this ball gets rolling, it will be a short time before all best-selling games use a 3D interface.
