Motion sensor to hit Xbox 360?

Remember how a few weeks back we said that the Xbox 360 would be getting some kind of motion sensor technology? Well it seems that are digging around the internet was right, as patent applications released from 2007 show thatMicrosoft filed one for a motion controller called 'Magic Wand'.

It has sparked rumours that Microsoft will be showing off its new technology at this year's E3 Expo in Los Angeles. The patent says that the wand interacts with a collection of biometric sensors that would examine 'fingerprint, hand geometry, hand vein pattern, palm pattern, and grip configuration'.

'We thought they were going to show something off at the E3 Expo in 2007 - some sort of waggle stick - but nothing materialised,' said Computer and Video Games' Gavin Ogden. 'I have no doubt they are going to try and do something, although it remains to be seen how they do it.'
