Wii Paint

After getting my Wii remote hooked up with the WiiFlash Server, I knocked up this quick Flash demo which draws the blobs of infrared light the Wii remote detects (it can track up to 4 blobs at once), just like the Wii console’s sensitivity setting dialog does. I just gave each blob a different colour and clear the graphics on pressing the ‘A’ button.

Here’s the code to get it working – requires WiiFlash Server:

The Power of Infrared

I started playing around with using the Wii remote as an infrared tracker to work with those cheap keychain lights you get – just like Johnny Lee suggested. I’m looking to start building interactive installations using novel forms of interaction, such as sound, webcam motion and perhaps 3-D techniques I’m thinking up.
