Fruit Ninja Recreated In Motion Tracking Simulator

What’s better than slicing fruit on your virtual touchscreen? How about slicing fruit with a virtual lightsaber? Four students at the FH Wedel University of Applied Sciences in Germany took it upon themselves to implement Fruit Ninja with a Wiimote, 5.1 sound, and something called CAVE (Cave Automatic Virtual Environment). Haptic feedback can be felt through the floor (what the students call a “butt-kick”), and a total of four displays surround students as they stand within an enclosure and wave a Wiimote. Bombs explode, beam swords are raised, and it could be the next Dance Dance Revolution if you’re for a good cardio workout. It’s certainly more practical than real life Fruit Ninja. Check out the vid after the break.
