Motion-tracking DSiWare game creates a world inside your console
Nintendo’s downloadable DSiWare games haven’t exactly been a huge hit so far, but Japanese title Rittai Kakushi e Attakoreda (Hidden 3D Image: There It Is!) shows off the platform’s potential by using the DSi’s cameras in a unique and truly amazing way. The game measures the position and trajectory of the DSi’s camera to simulate a three dimensional diorama inside your handheld’s dual screens. By moving the console around, the player can peer into areas that were previously hidden, creating a sort of 3-D hide-and-seek that looks similar to Johnny Chung Lee’s Wii motion tracking demo.
Naturally, the game is Japan-only for now, but I certainly hope they decide to release it elsewhere because these graphical illusions are pretty darn swell. Check the video above to see it in action.
