Consider these tech toys for holiday gifts

Here's a way to bring the popularity of "Dance Dance Revolution" game play to your television without having to own a console gaming system. Plus, with this dance game, there's no dance mat, just your feet wearing slip-on Motion Tags (a special button attached to an elastic band that you slip over your feet or shoes). To play, you follow footprint icons that show up on the screen, and the game tracks your dance movements, which can include jumping, sliding, crossovers and more. This dance game allows for more innovation than "DDR" as you dance through the 12 songs and other games.
