When it comes to video games that make you look absolutely ridiculous
, nothing beats Microsoft's Kinect
, but Nintendo's got a substitute if you just can't wait
. The aptly-named Face Pilot: Fly With Your Nintendo DSi Camera!
does exactly that, letting you literally direct a virtual hang glider with your face, by using the Nintendo DSi's camera to track your head in 2D space. Sure, Sony's EyeToy
did similar things earlier this decade and you could program Windows-based FreeTrack software to do the same, but neither provide the portable hilarity (or challenge) of Face Pilot
played on commuter rail. The downloadable title will set you back 500 Nintendo Points ($5) at the DSiWare store; watch a quick video demo after the break.
