That is amazing.

Could be usefull for so many more things aswell. All you need to do is look at the application of IR camera's.

Unfortunately I don't have a wii, so can't try it but I bet there are many more uses and ways the wii remote could save so much money altho maybe it has limited accuracy.

Just buy a Wii Remote, don't need the whole console. Bluetooth dongle aswell if you need it.

yer but I'm not spending £27 to test something

might borrow one from someone tho and if the idea works maybe invest in one

isn't the head movement thing the same idea that's already used in conjunction with webcams on IR mode?

There are some really interesting videos and articles on the TED website aswell

I just found one titled: Do schools kill creativity?

Which is really interesting (might bore some people)

edit:

Also The webcam thing with head movement I was thinking of earlier was FreeTrack
