Well, I found a really interesting video on YouTube that I just thought I had to share!




And the info from the description box...
Quote:http://www.ted.com Johnny Lee demos his amazing Wii Remote hacks, which transform the $40 game piece into a digital whiteboard, a touchscreen and a head-mounted 3-D viewer. A multi-ovation demo from TED2008.

Slight Correction to the Youtube BBCode

This reminds me that sooner or later, I need to figure out how to use my Wiimote as a mouse since my computer has bluetooth. Not for any real purpose, but just for some fun.

That's some pretty cool stuff! I hope some games make good use of the head movement thing. Having to actually get up and walk to "look around" an object in a game could be a great mechanic for some things.

Thanks Thoul for changing the code to the proper one. I was half asleep last night.

But I also agree with the head moving thing. In fact they already gave out an easter egg for a game they mentioned. I wouldn't mind checking that out. I need to rewatch the video though to see which game it was that mentioned it.

:o Wow, one of the technicians at work actually brought in his laptop running that target demo two or three months ago. He never explained it like the guy in that video does though! He claimed it as a flame tracking program, go figure. Never occured to me what that was meant to be demoing. And by the way, he was using cigarette lighters as opossed to IR flashlights, fire emits high amounts of IR light.

I could see this, the headset, being used in a remake of Phantasy Star. Imagine how immersive the dungeons could be with that.
