Today I stumbled across the work of Johnny Chung Lee. Specifically his work on the Nintendo Wii remote projects. This guy has done some amazing stuff with his Wii including finger tracking (think Minority Report), interactive white boards and head tracking. You have got to watch the video for head tracking and what it means for interface immersion. It blew my mind!
Johnny’s ability to take a technology that is already very cool and make it do things that the original developers may not have thought about is inspirational to say the least. While looking at his site I discovered that Johnny and I had ‘met’ before. His $14 Steadycam project is something I looked at years ago while studying video production.
