Human/Computer Interface, 2 of 3

The second peek into the future of computing -- and gaming -- comes from the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) going on right now in Los Angeles.

Sony unveiled a prototype of their response to the Nintendo Wii:

Cool. My one concern with this interface is the lack of resistance one gets when wielding a sword, etc.

I can envision a future version with gyroscopes that not only provide the real-time movement, but also the feel of the tool, weapon, or item you're "holding".
