Playing HALF-LIFE... with REAL guns!

The techies at Waterloo Labs in Austin, Texas are putting "shooter" into the first-person shooter game... literally! Using accelerometers, a big sheet of drywall and computer triangulation, they've made it possible to play a FPS like Half-Life with actual firearms and other physical weapons!

Behold the carnage...

I'd love to play Doom like this, but knowing me I'd just wind up chainsawing the drywall to pieces not long into Episode 1 Mission 2 :-P
