Tech Notes Series:The Powers of WII Remote

I chanced upon this video this week when one of my colleagues sent me the link through IM. Within just two minutes of watching the video, my jaw dropped and the geek in me got excited! I couldn’t contain myself from muttering relentlessly on how ingenious his ideas were.

The person I’m talking about is Johnny Chung Lee. He’s a Ph. D. Graduate Student of Human-Computer Interaction Institute in Carnegie Mellon University. He has a lot of cool ideas that I’m really impressed with. You could check out his website at http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~johnny/

For this post, I’ll be featuring his ideas regarding the other applications of the Nintendo Wii remote. You’d be amazed how cool this is and how simple it seems to be. You’d understand what I mean after you watch the videos below.

These are very good projects!
You can also apply this technology as Arbiter and AI for your Game of the generals (using real boards). With this technology, we can now play Game of the Generals using real board even without a third person.
