VentureBeat reports gaming accessory firm Mad Genius created a prototype of a new motion gaming controller that is comprised from a modified Xbox gamepad. The controller does not rely on accelerometers or cameras to track movement and promises to be as accurate as 1/100th of an inch on-screen to control characters, weapons and even game menus. Perhaps one of the most interesting aspects is that the controller can be used on virtually any game console for nearly any game, even for those that weren't initially created with motion controls in mind.

As you can see from the video demo below, you can control both your character and shoot a bow and arrow on the Xbox 360 version of Skyrim. Mad Genius controller is comprised from a modified Xbox gamepad. The final product, according to the company, meaning the wires that protrude from each portion of the controller will go away. The company is quick to note in the YouTube video description that neither the Xbox 360 or the copy of Skyrim (game being played) being played were modified in any way.
Mad Genius said it eventually plans on launching a Kickstarter campaign to get these controllers into production, but didn’t give an exact date on when that might be happening.
