Motion tracking software? Yeah, it's pretty old hat, but steps are being taken each day to take the technology to a place it has never been before. Overly dramatic? Sure, but we doubt you'll have much room to complain after peeking the video just past the break. Tipster Alexandre is responsible for the demonstration that you'll find there, showing off an application that can track an object that you select in real-time, with a single observation / image being enough to kick things off. It can handle zooms, object size changes, occlusion and temporary disappearances, and it's merely a mystery when something like this will get integrated into your motion gaming system of choice. Fingers crossed for "soon," right?

[Thanks, Alexandre]
