'WiiPop' dance game hacks Wiimotes and Kinect into unlikely tryst


Whether by choice or by force, chances are good you've experienced a dancing game by now. Typically, these games ask users to mimic dance moves for points, but WiiPop, created by one Christian "Mio" Loclair, is completely freestyle.

The game achieves this feat by incorporating both body-mounted Wii remotes and the Kinect.

It's all very amazing and complex and, as such, we suggest you watch the video above for the full rundown.
