Honda Test Drive

Its a very exciting time in games development with lots of new ways of players to interact with their computers. It could also be an exciting time in education if we take the lessons learned from games and apply them to teaching skills. There are hints for the future of learning like the Wii and Autism and the development of new technology such as mind reading game controllers.

Another example of where this technology can be found in this Honda Test Drive. Its a very poorly laid-out web site and the video isn’t entirely clear but its worth a look. It shows the Sudden Motion Sensor built into a Apple laptop being used to control a motorbike. Tipping the laptop left, tilts the bike to the left and vice versa.

Its a very simple proof of technology it is just another example of how movement is replacing button pressing for playing games.
