Most people are aware of how evolutionary interactive games have been thanks to consoles like the Nintendo Wii and now, the Roku Game Remote is about to take it to a whole different level.

The Roku Game Remote is similar to the Nintendo Wii controller in terms of form and functionality, but this one boasts a built-in accelerometer and gyroscope that will offer more precise motion detection for a more fluid/natural multimedia experience. Another great feature is the integration of Bluetooth. It's wireless and it means that if someone is blocking the front of the Roku player, you can still use it (unlike other controllers).

The company is planning to use Angry Birds as the first game to test out the Roku Game Remote's motion control.
