My favorite Wiimote Hacks

Johnny Chung Lee, of Carnegie Mellon University, is doing some amazing things with the wii remote! Here is one where he figured out how to use it for head tracking for desktop VR displays:

And here is another where he uses the wii remote to create a low-cost multi-touch display/whiteboard!

If you go to his website he's got another video where he tracks finger movement with the wii remote...just like in Minority Report. This guy is a genius.

That's crazy! I've seen the first one, but the white board one is pretty darn awesome. Just imagine how awesome pictionary could be : )
