Sure, we all make fun of motion gaming, partially because it’s required in the Hardcore Gamer Bylaws, along with reading Penny Arcade, mocking Tim Buckley, and owning at least one old console that you insist is the best gaming machine ever invented. But we soon may have to revise the bylaws, thanks to an industrious hackers.
Demize2010, as he’s known, has used open source tools to hack together a Wiimote and a Kinect to play FPS games on his PC.
