Never Cease To Amaze Me

Wii Balance Board Controls WoW

I figured it was only a matter of time before it happened, so here it is. The Balance Board has been “hacked” to be used to control World of Warcraft movement. Yes, you read that right. Below is the video that shows it in the works. It starts out with a bit of Google Earth footage, but then they show a gnome running around the game. The movement and camera seem to be all controlled pretty well too.

Now what does this mean? South Park will soon loose the Obese joke for WoW players, if it becomes that popular. πŸ™‚ Granted, they will have the extra geeky jokes still going for them, but no more hot pockets on the belly. Totally jest here, but it is kind of cool to see new tech being used in ways it wasn’t originally designed for. I look at it as one more step towards a fully VR or “Holo-Deck” set up for games. Steps toward the future.

WoW Comic Book Graphic Novel

On other WoW news though, There is a new comic for the game getting penned up and ready to go for the Launch of Wrath of the Lich King. It is being handled by the Blizzard team, so it shouldn’t be someone else’s take on the game world. Should be kind of cool for all those into WoW and such. I’ll stick to the Conan stuff for now. Damn the addiction.

World of Warcraft: Ashbringer goes on sale September 10, and should retail for $4 per issue.
