Microsoft kicked off the nation's premier video game expo on Monday by introducing revolutionary new technology for the X-Box 360 -- a full-body motion controller. Unlike the Wii, you don't have to hold anything. Just move your body, arms, legs, head -- and the games react. The technology also has face and voice recognition and responds to both physical and voice commands. Microsoft hasn't set a release date for the device.
