New Tony Hawk Peripheral "Responds Like A Real Skateboard"S

Whether you think the new Tony Hawk skateboard controller is a disaster-in-waiting or a stroke of mould-injected genius, you'll want to know how it works. And Tony Hawk himself has offered some clues.

"The board controller is a marvel of new technology", he says in full-blown PR mode, before continuing. "[It] responds like a real skateboard, you can even go for grabs and the sensors will detect it".

Interesting. So in addition from the obvious fact the thing is itself motion-sensitive, it can detect your hands grabbing the sides as well via "sensors"? How much is this thing going to cost, exactly?
