Mad Genius motion controller takes cover in Halo Anniversary

After redefining archery in Skyrim, the folks behind the Mad Genius prototype motion controller system have produced the above demo highlighting motion controls in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. Of particular note is how natural getting into cover looks with Mad Genius around the 4:22 mark – simply step to the side to safety.

Mad Genius is a split controller system capable of measuring movement as minute as 1/100th of an inch. The folks behind the tech plan on starting up a Kickstarter campaign soon, presumably to fund mass production of this motion controller or finally start work on that moon base – hey, you never know!
