WiiPop Is A Dancing Game For Those Poppers Everywhere

There are many impressive types of music genres in the world. Equally fascinating is the number of styles of dance that go along with that. One of the most strange and awesome dance styles to watch is popping. Every movement is articulated, and it takes a lot of practice to make it look good.

Most of the populace can enjoy games like Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) or Para Para, but those who like to pop, things are a little grim. It’s very difficult to pick up such acute movements. Poppers rejoice, because a game called WiiPop is in the works, and it is exactly what you think it is.

The prototype was built out of body-mounted Wiimotes and a Kinect camera. This is going to be an open source project from the looks of things, which is great news for the development of games in this particular genre.  This game hopes to “push the level of physical detection and algorithmically categorization.” So if looks to be an item of interest to you, you may want to go here to check out their site.
