UBS have created a musical game for the Nintendo Wii title.
The game allows the console's controller - the Wii Remote or Wiimote - to be waved around and used as a conductor's baton.
UBS recorded the Verbier Festival Orchestra in Switzerland (who they sponsor) and then devised software that speeds up or slows down the music according to the Remote's movements. So far it has been seen in concert hall lobbies in the US but the company
hope to ship it over to Europe later this year.
More on The Register
I'm thinking of getting a Wii controller myself (without the Wii) to use as a wacky interface device for the music stuff on the Mac. If I can do it
without being uncool, nerdy and geeky.
