Hillcrest Labs announced today at CES that they have teamed with Broadcom to produce a new low cost, embedded Bluetooth, motion control system for TV manufacturers.  Per their press release:

Hillcrest Labs, a leader in motion-control technology and interactive television applications, today announced a new low cost, embedded motion-control system for TV manufacturers. The new turnkey solution is designed to support new motion pointing and gesture-enabled user interfaces for navigating the Web, Internet-based applications, and games on televisions.

Basically, their Freespace Motion Engine is now integrated with Broadcom’s new BCM35230 digital TV system-on-a-chip (SoC) and Broadcom’s new BCM20730 single-chip Bluetooth solution.  This should enable a cost-effective, and fully-featured motion control solution for connected televisions.

They will be showing this technology for the first time tonight at 7pm at the Pepcom Digital Experience event at Caesars Palace.
