One step closer to virtual Wii environments?

If you aren’t familiar with Johnny Lee, let me just say that the dude is a genius. He’s already shown us how you can track your fingers and use the Wiimote as a cheap digital white board, but this new one tops those. What is it? In technical terms, head tracking for desktop VR displays using the Wiimote. In normal terms? It makes it like you’re looking in a window/room, not at a TV.

According to Johnny’s website:

"Using the infrared camera in the Wii remote and a head mounted sensor bar (two IR LEDs), you can accurately track the location of your head and render view dependent images on the screen. This effectively transforms your display into a portal to a virtual environment. The display properly reacts to head and body movement as if it were a real window creating a realistic illusion of depth and space."

Instructions to pull this off are on his website as well. Want to give it a shot and see if you fail spectacularly?
