Friday Video (Bonus 2): This time the force really is with you

If you’re going to create a video game that mimics the force in George Lucas’ Star Wars sagas, you need some major electronic mojo. Here’s a video review of an early version of the “Kinect: Star Wars” game that makes good use of the versatile and increasingly popular Microsoft Kinect optical gaming system to allow you to use the powers of the force like Obi-Wan Kenobe and Luke Skywalker. (Please excuse the ad, it’s the only way to bring this video to you.)

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This video game demonstrates that advanced electronics continues to put new oomph in existing product genres. In this case it’s video games, which now have a 40-year history. (Whew! Help me Obi-Wan, you’re my only hope!)
