The history of hands-free controllers B.K. (before Kinect)~

PCMag has a brief look at a couple of the hands-free controllers that pre-date the Kinect.
Decades before Microsoft would release its Kinect for Xbox 360 depth-sensing camera system, other companies tried to take the gamepad out of the gaming equation. These attempts varied in usefulness, ranging from somewhat functional to laughable and pointless, and from the forgettable to the downright infamous.
But a video is worth a thousand pictures. So check out the Sega Activator's morning show appearance in the video above. The graphics might be better, but the loss of dignity remains the same~
