I found this on Youtube. I don't think it's a very practical way to fly, but cetainly an interesting option for those without a joystick.

I wonder if the controller could be put to any other interesting uses? Ideas please (even sensible answers are welcome http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif).

Now...would it possible to strap that gizmo to your head and map view functions to it? If so, would it be more cost-effective than TrackIR?

The more I think about it...

Ooh... that has promise!

You'd only have to sellotape one to an old steering wheel and instant CH yoke!

It's like a Computer-based Wii!

Can you imagine going to someone's house and seeing them strapped to a bunch of old remotes?
