Holy @#$! Awesome VR with Wiimote!

January 10, 2008

Frequent readers will remember that I used to make video games in a prior life. So I nearly jumped out of my skin when I saw this:

Someone, please, jump all over this and make me some games. (Yes, I’m gonna tell my game developer friends).

Why on earth hasn’t this spread all over the place? Thanks Geekdad!

    It already did spread all over the place several weeks ago! ;) His demo actually made me go track down a wiimote and a bluetooth adapter (and a bunch of IR LEDs from eBay) several days later. I’ve been playing with and slightly tweaking all three of his demo programs since then. Now I just have to affix my LEDs to my 99-cent store safety glasses…

    The math portions are a bit beyond me (for the moment!), but interesting nonetheless. Brian Peek’s WiimoteLib that the above demo apps use is also an impressive piece of work.

    Seeing that makes me wish we could’ve kept Lyra Studios open and running…. not that we ever had a dev budget to capitalize on it. Too bad… I miss the gaming side of business…

    But then again, now I am having a blast with photography and motorcycles :) Win/Win!

    Genius!
    Now if only Wii would let homebrew code being run on it and Blender3D could be ported so that the gaming engine would work on the Wii!
