    I dont know if anyone has ever played virtual bowling, but man is it fun!
    Here is a video of Hyper Bowling in the Metrion in San Francisco

    (sorry, i dont know how to get the youtube player in here!)

    I was there yesterday, and wow, was that virtual bowling game fun!
    You have a bowling ball inside this little tower, and only half of the ball is sticking out, and you roll the ball forward, to make the bowling ball on the screen go forward.

    Since there is no way to get that bowling ball controller which the lady pushes with her hands.
    (look to video or go to this picture: http://www.dailydoseofethan.com/images/displaysized/2007.09.08_11.11.46.jpg)
    I was thinking that instead we would just use our fingers, or!

    Better use the accelerometer! Tilt forward for speed! Back to slow down, left, right, etc.
    And plus, if you have a group of people with you, you could play multiplayer, and pass the iPhone/iPod Touch around, and every player signs in, and you pass it around everytime it someone else turn.

    So what do you guys thinks?
