Yep, we finally figured out how the darn IR camera works. It's just a quick hack, but I've written a program to take the data from the Wiimote, filter it a bit, and emulate a mouse. It's actually quite a decent input device, although I recommend using big icons. I've demonstrated a few simple activities with it. Buttons on the Wiimote map to mouse buttons and scroll wheel. Of course, the sensor bar has to be on for this to work (make your own, as documented in many places, or just power yours off your Wii as I use here)

I'm working on a full-blown Linux driver with support for every feature known, multiple clients, and a lot more (with no ugly hacks).

See you soon with the next video!
