Drop The Mouse and Pick up a Laser Pointer

Who needs a mouse when you can use a laser pointer? Patent pending technology being developed by Alpay Kasal of Lit Studios for use by Interference Inc pushes the drop the mouse mentality. The video of people playing games with this looks like a lot of fun.

"LaserGames is a means of controlling games and applications on any scale using a laser pointer. I'm sure you've seen laser controlled bits of coolness in one form or another but I'd like to think I just raised the bar a bit - mouse emulation means you can play whatever you want to throw at it (versus using a dedicated app made in mxp or vvvv or whatevs). In this clip you see a 2000 lumens projector, and the laser pointer is of the typical 5mw red diode keychain variety. When I have some time, I'm going to get set up outdoors and let people on the street have some fun with it. I just got it working with simultaneous red and green pointers so we got multi-player action coming up."
