More on WiiI have talked about the Nintendo Wii a few times in this blog. I did not realsie or even think about some aspects of its unrealised potential until I found the following videos on youtube. Jonny Lee at Carnegie Mellon University seems to be an extremely smart cookie, his use of the Wii controller and sensor bar for various tracking applications is brilliant in my humble opinion. The Wii controller contains a infra red camera wich can track four points, (and a bluetooth signal output) A bluetooth equipped PC can then capture the tracking and do cleaver things with it as Jonny’s videos demonstrate. Check them out the head tracking for VR displays.
Also extremely clever is the finger tracking video.
Can you think of any other applications?, what about tracking for the Robot Football?
