The Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em robots game is now new and improved, where a slew of servos and fancy movement detecting watches from Texas Instruments will add more value. Sounds fancy? Perhaps so, but it won’t break the bank since it comes with a three-axis accelerometer, pressure sensor, and RF wireless communications (inclusive of a watch, of course) for a mere $50. Using one of these timepieces on each wrist, the Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots game can be full controlled using one’s motion. Of course, you will probably expend a whole much less energy compared to the traditional setup. If you want to sweat it out instead, just get Wii Sports and you should be happy.
