Softkinetic, a company that wants to help people play video games using their bodies as controllers, was on stage at our GamesBeat 2009 conference today to give us a preview of its technology, which it’s been working on for six years. We wrote about Softkinetic back in 2006, but the technology is now coming into its own, with VentureBeat writer Dean Takahashi identifying it as one of the big trends at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show.

Ooyala‘s Alexa Lee interviewed Softkinetic chief executive Michael Tombroff, and you can see her video below. You don’t get to see the dance game that the Atherton, Calif. company is working on, but Tombroff answers some questions about the product, and he and Lee also show off their dance moves.
