    Wii-mote not as advanced as previously thought?

    The Wii might not actually be able to detect the remote's exact location and orientation in 3D space. I'm not sure if Nintendo actually made the claim that it could, but that's certainly what I was led to believe.

    Then again you'd need an extra sensor or two placed on the body somewhere to give the wii an idea of where the controller was in relation to the rest of your body. Unless it assumed your arm was in a specified position in relation to the rest of your body most of the time.

    Oh well. I think they might've taken the best route for the goal they had in mind.

    (If this has already been discussed please excuse me)

    Hmm... Yes, that fear has been in the back of my mind for a while now. But I'll just wait for someone to come here and present evidence that it is as advanced as I've lead to believe. xP

    it does not detect exactly were it is in 3d space for most games, it only detects where it is moved to from a reference point, but with the Ir and motion sensing put together correctly it can tell were it is based on quite a few reference points, but really wouldn't be worth the programming time.
    If you never try you may never fail, but you will also never succeed.

    No it's like this.
    Say your Wiimote is where it is, when you move it like forward, it will know you moved it forward. Thats what they mean by 3D space.

    Everything in this signature except for this text was made by Wiired, he is my creator and almighty.
