Nice, low tech hack. Via Joystiq
That was flippin sweet!
Very nice I'll have to try that some time its kinda like microsofts new touch table thingy where it detects multiple touch points with lasers
that is awesome! However, where do you find IR LEDs, outside of eBay?
thats pretty cool but not half as cool as that thing in minority report.
Radio Shack. Ebay has much better deals. Especially if you're building an array.
But if you wanted to have some good fun with it , it might be hard.
Wiimote shuts off after not touching it for a while.
well technically you are using it.
That is right if you are pointing it works but you wouldn't be able to do anything but point because you don't because you can't press any buttons.
yeah. thats why only player 2 can really play wii sports...
If it's connected to your PC, it doesn't shut off.
There are some applications where that is enough. You have two inputs to manipulate, and a number of ways to make them interactive. As you saw in the video, he was able to zoom in and on the object, and move it from side to side. For some applications, including some games, you really don't need much more than that.
That is great. I sure you could even make some gesture commands for some games.
Like tap your fingers together
I dont know, but it sure looks cool.
Thats pretty cool, Kudos to the creator.
That is very cool! Anyone find the resemblens between this and the new computer microsoft is working on?( You know that big ass table! )
The part where this guy is turning and rotating a square looks a lot like that!
nice find, very cool.......but i can't be bothered getting reflective tape and fancy light thingys
Maybe, using this, you can actually hold a tennis racket or baseball bat while playing wii sports. That would be pretty kool.
Wii Sports doesn't use the IR pointer outside of menus. Just the accelerometer. Any useful application of this tech is going to be on PC.
Wait... hold on. I have an easier suggestion, although it's also less tech and more easy... It might not even work. Just put an IR LED on something like stretchy fabric, attach it to a small battery, and put your Wii remote on top of the LED.
BTW, I haven't done this. It's just a suggestion.
Put the WiiMote on the TV, not on the LED.
I'm guessing you miswrote that. Putting your wiimote on top of an IR LED does nothing. Unless you're trying to keep the wind from blowing the LED away.
