  1. While this hack is sweet for what it does, the guy said “Reticule movement on screen would correspond to where the Wiimote is pointing (via its IR sensors)”

    I call, shenanigans on that: he must be using the accelerometers for pointer position. First, I can’t see the IR sensor bar in anywhere in the picture and it would have to be on/under the TV for it to work. Second, he doesn’t talk at all about how you go about getting the sensor bar to interface with a pc (what kind of signal it outputs etc.) And lastly, watching the game play it just feels like he’s using the accelerometer.

    All in all though, he did a kick-ass job. This hack is full of WIN. I’d love to see a DIY kit + source

  2. Neuticle,

    The “sensor bar” isn’t actually a sensor. It simply emits a pair of ir signals at a known (relatively) geometry. To demonstrate this, some people have tried replacing the sensor bar with other sources of ir (e.g., lit candles) and it works!
