“Call of Duty; Black Ops II” by Activision made $500M in the first 24 hours of its release this month!!!

“Halo 4” Made $220M the week before!

The MEMS suppliers know where the money is with smart phones and tablets plus the gaming industry and you can be sure they are feverishly working on the next level of motion sensing to make gaming more realistic.

One recent example is Xsens and STMicro who just introduced the world’s first wearable wireless 3D body motion tracking system based on consumer-grade MEMS combo sensors at Electronica 2012.

I think it’s time to push away from the keyboard, pick up my .50 caliber and body armor and go into battle.

“Hoo-Rah!” “Honey, stop the Zumba exercise, I need the X-Box to stop Raul Menendez who hijacked the US military infrastructure!”
