OK, with that out of the way, all these notion control things seem to forget one very important point - if you're not more convenient than the alternatives, no-one is going to care. Why would I want to drop £200 for the privilege of being able to control Netflix by flailing around wildly when I can achieve exactly the same using a remote or a mouse? Why would I want to be required to act out a charades routine when giving a presentation when a pointer or mouse works just as well? Or rather better, given that you'd appear to need a pointer in addition to this thing anyway. Motion controls have failed every time so far because they invariably make controls less accurate and less convenient.
