extreme realityStraight from CES 2013 this one would be a piece of launch news for the avid gamers out there. In fact Microsoft Kinect might just have to worry now. This software enables normal 2D cameras to be transformed into a full-body motion control system for full scale interactive gaming.

The Extreme Reality XTR3D software from Israel based Extreme Reality is every gamer’s dream. Its compatible with both Windows and Android systems and is meant for motion oriented games.
