Progress on the Intelligent Child Computer Interface (ICCI)

Today was a very successful day for our group. We managed to connect a Wii remote to a laptop successfully. Also, we created a small infrared LED " light pen" that emits IR light that the Wii remote can see. When calibrated correctly, our light pen can be used as a traditional computer mouse (see video below). This technology has been developed by Johnny Chung Lee, and he has posted all his work on his website for anyone to use. Using this simple technology, we believe that we can open up a world of possibilities. Currently we are exploring possibilities to turn this technology into a Intelligent Child Computer Interface.
