Apple developing a 3D remote

Apple is developing a 3D gaming controller for Apple TV, according to reports on AppleInsider and nacnn.com. The remote and Apple TV would be similar to Nintendo's Wii gaming consule.

The remote would also have a zoom feature. Apple may use it as a virtual apps store where users can roam the Apple Store as if they were in a sophisticated 3D video game.

Wii Remote Controller

The Wii Remote Controller makes gaming as accessible to people of all ages and all abilities. Nintendo fused the familiarity of a remote control with the sophistication of motion-sensing technology -- creating a multifunctional device limited only by the imagination. In a tennis game, it serves as your racket you swing with your arm. In a driving game, it serves as your steering wheel. For first-person shooters, the remote acts as your weapon that you point at an enemy. The list of potential uses goes on and on. Used as a remote, operates up to 15 feet away. Built-in speaker.
