I think this thing is pretty awesome but it would be a pain to have to program allllll the individual commands to your voice if it didn`t have a fairly advance voice recognition system. Cost would be an issue as well. Still awesome though.

Touch screens is old technology nowadays, you could go out and actually buy a touchscreen if you really cared that much. But the game looks awesome! If only I was heartless enough to download off limewire, alas, I am not so.

this has many possibilities, the only thing i dont like about it is the voice part, i dont want to be sitting in my room saying "attack. Build. MOVE!!!" to a touch screen.

you CAN move one x axis-side and one y axis-side with just a mouse... but you cant move both at all. but with thow hands, you could even move the entire box itself to a different spot, simplifying by alot. with jsut the regular mouse, if you didnt click exactly the right spot or somewhere close you might not select the right units, or you might not select all the ones you want.

i can`t believe the idiots on here trying to act all smart.. he said --BI--Manual; if you`re not even smart enough to know that bi means two, as in you can move the X and Y axis individualy, then i don`t think you should own a computer. It is very difficult to do with a mouse because you would need 2 mice to do it.

There is no way you could be faster with something like that than you can with a mouse and hotkeys

Killer_Tofu, you didn`t notice what was going on in reference to the bimanual selection. When you select a group normally with a mouse, the starting `click` is stationary and the box moves from that initial point. However, with bimanual selection (from what I saw), you are able to continually move the X and Y axis beyond what would be restricted with the single mouse click.

I agree... it doesn`t really matter because I, and most RTS players, are quite happy with our traditional manner of selection. However, it does seem like something that could add that little bit of extra edge.

needs some better AI and better respond time for it to be better than a mouse.

It may look extreme cool, but it is also extreme easy to make.

Nice. But touch-svreen isn`t exactly a new invention. I can`t imagine anything except a RTS to work with this anyway.

actually in wc3 all you have to do is right click and drag the mouse over the selected party.

it`s not hard to do, but this thing is f*ckin sweet.

I can`t stand RTS games, I suck at them. Would this console thing (if it were real) do anything else?

and the units always respond lather.
i say, this might be fake

Clicking and dragging is difficult to do with a mouse? Ok, granted, it`s cool, and I want one, but for some reason I get the feeling this guy who`s demonstrating it knows nothing about warcraft 3, especially how to interface with it with your normal mouse and keyboard.
