    Saw this the other week, defiantly way cool. However, it strikes me that all you actually need is a infrared camera, that's all the Wiimote is. I've just found instructions on how to convert a standard USB webcam to infrared, might give that a go.

    I grabbed my Wiimote and retro-fitted an LED Torch (maplins, 3.50 lol) with an IR LED.

    Works pretty damn well actually, turned my TV into an IWB for less than 10, including the bus home from town too!


    OK the accuracy is nowhere near an IWB, but then thats to be expected.
    for the home user, getting a decent IR-torch-pen thing and getting the Wiimote set up in a decent place would be more than sufficient.

    I shall be investing in a better torch very soon!

    Wow, I have got to give this a roll at home! Is it hard to set up?
