There are scant details for how it'll work, and hey, maybe there are other shapes that an erotic game would want to detect other than the shape of a baby's arm holding a crabapple. But I can't think of any.

But hey, maybe this is a good thing! It's innovation! It seems weird now, but when Natal comes out we'll probably be using our boners to reload machine guns in Gears of War 3. [TeaTime via Canned Dogs via Kotaku]
