As it was stated at E3 2011, when the Wii U was first announced, the system uses its unique controller as a sort of 'window' into the video game world. The above gif seems to explain this a bit by showing what appears to be the manipulation of objects in 3D space. This opens the gaming world to a whole new level of possibilities that should be interesting to see once the Wii U is released later this year.
Are you interested in trying out the Wii U to see how this all works?
