Next year you'll be able to pick up Fusion Controllers for $56. The controllers let you actually 'play' your video games by recognizing your raquet strokes and clever sword fighting moves. Computer and Video Games reports, "Comparisons to the Nintendo Wii are inevitable, but after going hands-on with fusion we found that it offers a much more advanced means of control than Nintendo's forthcoming console. Unlike Wii, fusion is able to accurately track movements even when the controller is not pointed directly at the screen, so the precise swing of a club is recreated perfectly."
