Kinect for Xbox 360

This add-on for the Xbox 360 uses a sensor to track multiple points on your body, turning you into the gaming controller. With Kinect games you can dance, play sports, and even participate in racing games, all sans an actual controller. And when utilized with Xbox Live the device allows you to control your show-watching experience by playing, pausing, and rewinding via verbal command. Cost: $149.99
