The amazing WiiMote even makes julienne fries

Johnny Lee is a researcher at Carnegie Mellon who has been working on ways that you can use the Wii’s controller to create interfaces for PC’s.  If you haven’t seen his demonstration videos before, they’re definitely worth viewing.  Trust me, you’ll be blown away.

You can connect the WiiMote to any PC with a bluetooth receiver; the software you create from that point is bounded only by your imagination.  The results here are pretty remarkable.  This is a perfect, and particularly literal example of a game innovation extended to conventional UI’s.
