Since its introduction, the Nintendo Wii remote has become one of the world's most sophisticated and common input devices. Combining its impressive capability with a low cost and high degree of accessibility make it an ideal platform for exploring a variety of interaction research concepts. The author describes the technology inside the Wii remote, existing interaction techniques, what's involved in creating custom applications, and several projects ranging from multiobject tracking to spatial…

The versatility of the Wii controller in CS education

It is observed that despite the seemingly disparate nature of the example subjects chosen, project from both merged seamlessly illustrates that the Wii controller is very good at exploiting the deep synergy that exists between varying fields of CS study.

Hacking Nintendo Wii to paint virtual graffiti

A system to draw virtual graffiti on the PC screen, as it were a wall, by exploiting the Nintendo console gaming device and sensor system and confirms the importance of similarity in simulated scenarios.

Low Cost Interactive Electronic Whiteboard Using Nintendo Wii Remote

Problem statement: The application of interactive whiteboard offers ex tensive benefits in the learning and teaching process for classroom env ironment. The high cost associated with commercial

In this paper we present WiiPaint+, a computer program for painting which uses the Wii remote. We aimed at creating an intuitive, active and immersive painting experience for the user taking

Towards Affordable Gesture based Interfaces - An Exploration with Wii Remotes

NuWii is presented, which provides a new, more intuitive way of manipulating the camera in the Spiegel visualization system, and provides an expandable base that could be used for gesture control in many other applications.

3D Spatial Interaction with the Wii Remote for Head-Mounted Display Virtual Reality

This research investigates the design of a low-cost 3D spatial interaction approach using the Wii Remote for immersive Head-Mounted Display (HMD) virtual reality. Current virtual reality applications

PyMT: a post-WIMP multi-touch user interface toolkit

This work discusses PyMT's architecture and sample applications to demonstrate how it enables rapid development of prototypes and interaction techniques while being accessible to novice programmers and providing great flexibility and creative freedom to advanced users.

3D tracking using multiple Nintendo Wii Remotes: a simple consumer hardware tracking approach

The tracking approach described could be used for tracking the user's motions in video games based upon physical activity (sports, fighting or dancing games), allowing the player to interact with the game in a more intuitive way than by just pressing buttons.

Localized Space Display

It is demonstrated how such a display can be built using only a traditional desktop monitor and two depth cameras, and the new functionality LSD can provide designers and engineers, working between 3D CAD software and 2D internal messaging systems, through new interactive affordances.
