Usually, the input method of video games is manual with the keyboard and / or mouse, especially for the PC, or a gamepad for game consoles. In the 1980s, other input devices such as joysticks and paddles were widespread. Games with voice command have not been popular due to the error rate of speech recognition. The feet are seldom used, they are especially useful in racing games for the control of gas and brake pedals.
Moreover, some less common devices like the PC Dash and the Strategic Commander are still usable. There have been various attempts to promote game responsiveness to the movement of the player’s body – for example, by pressure sensors in rubber mats, or by evaluation of a camera image.
This type of control become more established, only with the widespread use of the Wii console from Nintendo. The controller has a motion sensor that detects movement and the position in space, it can be controlled by a character arm movements.
