    Johnny Lee's headtracking setup using Wiimote

    Okay guys, I thought some of you would like to see this. Some of you might already have seen this. But either way it's so awesome.

    With just a wiimote, bluetooth connection, some software free to download and an infrared LED... you can rule the world.. Thank you Johnny Lee!



    Minority report stuff!



    And the coolest IMO: Headtracking VR, yes Virtual Reality bitches

    Not everyone trolls the lounge every day. I check it rarely - so this was new to me, thanks for posting!!!

    I troll the lounge everyday and I have not seen this.
    Really cool and promising technology.

    The head tracking is just fantastic! It looks so good.

    Not to be a complete jerk, but a much better version of this has been on the market for some time. It's called the TrackIR from NaturalPoint. I own a TrackIR 4 Pro and use it for flight-sims.

    Is it useful for flight-sims?

    My friend, it's the shit's tits. It's awesome. It can't be stated enough just how fucking cool it is.

    When playing a flight sim like Aces High 2 (http://www.flyaceshigh.com) which is a massively-multiplayer-on-line-flight-sim, your situational awareness skyrockets when equipped with a TrackIR. You're suddenly about to look AROUND your cockpit, out each window, etc. by turning your head. It feels completely natural and the learning curve is almost non-existent.
