You're an idiot. Laproscopy (the technique in question) is essentially telepresence surgery. You hold small tools with a camera attached to a long, maneuverable tube. Your tools are also attached to long tubes, and you're basically watching yourself do the surgery on TV. The wii is also telepresence. You hold controls and your character on screen reacts. Laproscopy uses almost exclusively your eyes and fine motor control in the hands. The wii is obviously an ideal corollary in the video game world.

I don't see how anyone voted the parent interesting when he suggests tennis might help. Even his sewing and soldering suggestions involve direct observation and manipulation, as opposed to the wii's telepresence manipulation.

They need to buy out the people behind the Ouya system and incorporate that and make it $100. All Ouya has is money anyways. Roku is close to offering this already, now that they offer games. Google needs to control this out of the gate instead of diving in late in the game like they usually do. Android-powered, web-connected TV interface that supports gaming. KIS,S

This is what bothers me more than anything. Anyone able to remain that calm in the spotlight is probably a bit of a dick. I'd like Wikileaks to turn out to be a hero and everyone to slowly forget the name Julian Assange. But then again, nobody wants to remember the message, just the name (I'm looking at you, Christians, Buddhists, etc.).

What the world *really* needs is a good Automatic Bicycle Sharpener.
