Earlier today, we reported on Microvision's gun-shaped Pico Projector controller. The prototype, being tested at the Intel Extreme Masters tournament now, provides a real 3D feel by projecting the game world over whatever the gun is pointed at. Engadget's managed to nab a screenshot and a video of the new controller in action. In the video the weapon's responsiveness looks great. In fact, the whole set-up looks perfectly playable from a gamer's point of view. The projected screen looks grainy and green-ish in the video, but I'm willing to give Microvision the benefit of the doubt there. It's hard to capture this kind of thing well on video. The controller itself looks awesome. It's basically an assault rifle with a big box on the top rail. Aiming will have to be done through the actual on-screen reticule. Unless the design changes greatly, the projector will make sighting down the barrel itself impossible. Microvision still hasn't released any information about when we can expect this thing to launch or how it will be marketed/sold.
