Things just got interesting... Johnny does it again.

This is incredible.  Basically it moves the image on the screen in tandem with your head, giving you a sense of 3D perspective.  This would be crazy with flight simulators and first-person shooters. 

Imagine looking to your left a bit and you are looking out the side window of the plane.  Look down and you see the console.  Look up and you see sky.

I gotta get a wiiremote and try this one out.

Using the infrared camera in the Wii remote and a head mounted sensor bar (two IR LEDs), you can accurately track the location of your head and render view dependent images on the screen. This effectively transforms your display into a portal to a virtual environment. The display properly reacts to head and body movement as if it were a real window creating a realistic illusion of depth and space
