as in 6axis the controller, even read a article about it on ign or gamespot or some other onlinezine.
But to use your wand as the best way expression, your arm is the wand and grabing it with "the claw" is the best way to do so. Not exactly sure how your supposedto press buttons though
I know you were talking about the controller but 6-axis comes from the fact that it can interpret movements across 6 different axis positional X, Y and Z as well as Rotational X, Y, and Z Thats all the axis there are 6 is all you need to interpret any kind of movement of an object in the real world.
The problem is that the object interpreting these movements is the controller. With a wand type/ single handed controller those movements are mapped directly to one of your hands (or with the nunchuck both hands independently). With a traditional two handed controller the movement data is mapped to this unnatural 3rd point in space between your two hands, which are unnaturally locked together as if you were in handcuffs.
The fact that you have to contort your hand into a misshapen claw ON TOP OF having to hold a single controller with two hands is just moldy icing on a bitter cake. Seriously human hands were not meant to be bent into a shape like that.. if you happen to actually enjoy holding you hand in such an unnatural position for extended periods of time might I suggest Corseting, Foot binding, or Neck Stretching as other hobbies you might enjoy pursuing.
How often do you push buttons when interacting with the real world? unless you're sitting at a computer, or playing a video game chances are you're doing more moving then button pushing, and if you do push a button you rarely need to push more then one.
If you have enough freedom in your movements buttons aren't needed.
Nothing says you need to move your arm either, at least not with the wand...
Go find a pen and hold it in your hand, now hold your arm still and point the pen around the room moving your wrist... you'll have approximately 1/4 sphere range in movement now go grab a PS2 controller and try to do the same thing, you can probably pitch it up and down and that's about it... the problem is any other movement would require a difference in position between your two hands.
You can use a wii-remote like a football, a baseball bat, a tennis racket, a fishing rod, a golf club, a sword, a gun, or just as an extension of your own arm. none of which are possible with a traditionally shaped controller.
The only real world movement the SIXAXIS can emulate is that of a steering wheel or other two handed devices, which the wii-remote can do as well.
Your computer's mouse is nothing more then a 2D wand interface.
