Head Tracking for Use With Desktop Virtual Reality Displays

Johnny Chung Lee, a man notorious for his Wii-mote projects, has once again figured out a clever way to use the controls for a new purpose. His latest project uses the Wii-mote and sensor bar to track head movements used in creating desktop Virtual Reality displays.

You can grab the software to run the desktop VR program in the video and take a look at Lee’s other Wii-mote projects at his Carnegie-Mellon University web site. Gamers can also check into his Procrastineering blog to comment on and discuss his projects.
