If you have not had enough of Microsoft’s Kinect on the Xbox 360, then you would be interested to hear that Side-Kick’s “Top Smash Tennis” has already integrated extreme reality technology within, allowing it to pave the way for an whole new gaming experience by using a standard 2D camera on any Windows 8-powered device to map your body as the controller. This is made possible thanks to Extreme Reality’s Extreme Motion technology, where Top Smash Tennis would unchain you from the keyboard, mouse or joystick, as you use your body’s gestures to control your in-game avatar.

Guy Ben-Dov, founder and CEO of Side-Kick Games, said, “Top Smash Tennis offers Windows 8 users an entirely new and exhilarating way to interact with PC games. With the integration of the Extreme Motion SDK, users feel like they are actually playing tennis by performing real forehands, backhands, smashes and serves.” I don’t know about you, a body as a game controller sounds fun at first, but after a while when you just want to munch on some pizza while playing, there is nothing quite like a regular controller that gets the job done. What do you think of playing tennis with your body as a controller?
