Using the 6DOF TrackIR system, wouldnt it technically be possible to build a virtual gun that works in all games (rather than a light gun like eDimensionals)...

By tracking the movement of your arm holding a device, it could simulate mouse movement in game. Surely it would be a little tough and sensitive at first, but after some tweaking, you could get it to work nicely.

Add wireless support from a cheapo-mouse, remap the button to a trigger in a squirt-gun shell, and you have a virtual shooter...

Should work eh? Those tracking rings could even be used. When moving your arms in an aiming fashion, it could tell supported games to zoom in and such.

Yes...im crazy
