Yeah, I saw this before this post. Really damn awesome, no?

I love how he challenges game developers to use this somehow. I hope they do. biggrin

Nintendo needs to call this guy up and make him head of an R & D team and let him go to work. This dude has come up with nifty uses for the wii remote camera and ir sensors.

A FPS using that would absolutely rock - imagine literally being able to peek out from behind cover or around a corner using that type of technology

That would be the absolute pinnacle of an FPS. Analog stick for movement. Your head for camera control. Wiimote for aiming/firing. It would be so damn fun. Until they make holodecks, that would rule.

With the enormous amount of money they've made over the past year, they could easily afford to do that. Either that or some developer should just make a game using this technique and sell it through VC.

My problem is I don't know where in my city you can find safety glasses like that. I could go with the sensor bar fastened to a cap, but I really don't want to risk being misinterpreted as a conspiracy geek who's attempting to tune in UFOs.

After a bit of dicking around I got this to work.  I am using a Kensington Bluetooth USB 2.0 adapter.  The tutorial for installing the Bluetooth for Wii recommends using Soleil but another Wiimote PC page indicates it does not need it.  So my initial problems may have been linked to that.  In the end I just used the Windows XP discovery method and it was fine.

A good application to make sure everything is working is WiinRemote which is a dump of all the outputs being generated by the Wiimote to the PC. 

But in the end I fired up the app and was able to do all the demo stuff.  So I got about 5 minutes of "Wow that is cool!" after about and 1.5 hours of screwing around figuring out what all the various error messages I encountered were telling me.

Hot damn, Sony, use this in conjunction with a regular controller for some awesome stuff in a game! Nintendo should be ashamed if Sony capitalizes on this before them, given the ease with which it should be doable with the Wii hardware.

At first I was going to advocate that MS and Sony jump on this tech right away, then I thought I about it and figured it's as gimmicky as the Wiimote. Sure, it would be cool for an FPS and whatnot, but how long are you going to play standing up, moving around a room, ducking, etc.? I can see it fun for something like a line of party games that includes the needed accessories to access the technology, but in no way would I want that to be the standard control scheme for all my games.

I've never seen any flight sim players standing up, moving around the room and ducking when they play.  I don't see why PS3 games should be any different.

cool idea, but it'd get annoying if it kept on losing you in game.  As much as I though the Wii idea was cool at first I've come to realize when I'm playing games all I really want to do is sit on my ass, not be bobbing and weaving around on the couch.

Exactly my point, its just another gimmick to draw the casual crowd who only play in half hour spurts. Seems like something more fitting for an arcade.

I'm not sure what games you guys are playing but head tracking involves you simply turning your head slightly.  If you're too lazy to do that then I would suggest that you probably need to get off the couch and do something!

Exactly, and head tracking has been used very effectively by Track IR on the PC for years. I've owned one of their devices and I can tell you that using it only involves subtle movements of the head to deliver an amazing effect. In fact Track IR has often been referred to as the most revolutionary peripheral in the history of flight sims.

I personally think both Nintendo and Sony should be all over this technology.

I would be more than happy to play an FPS with motion tracking technology.

In fact, I would pay a premium to play such a game, if it had online multiplayer.

I think $100 would be a fair price when you include the hardware required for such a venture.

I'd be fine with having glasses strapped to my head though, as I think this will make for an easier way to control the experience.
