Virtual Reality coming to my home

February 21st, 2008

I had overheard people talking about using Nintendo’s ‘Wii’ game controllers with their computer, but I had never seen it used before. This grad student at Carnegie Mellon is up to some really cool stuff, and it looks like something I might be able to do with home DVR. He has three projects that I might install in my own home: a “Minority Report”-style controller for the TV; an immersive scene (just for fun); and a digital whiteboard. All of these project can be done for under $100. He provides all the software for free. I just might have to give it a try here at home…

Here’s the stunning example from the head tracking video. Skip to 2:35 if you just want see the results without the explanation:
