the camera guy was having fun with that demo
Even the camera guy was excited
Some good old TED talk times…
I think he needs to go to the bathroom real quick.
Man so much cool stuff happened in the 00s
Interesting and informative, technology is moving ever-closing to our vision of the future we are co-creating!
I'm in 2020 and this is still impressive!
12 years later and you still need little screens attached to your head for "Immersion"
I would love to use the second technique with a projector and use it as a set for filming. A bit like what they have done with the Mandalorian! Unfortunately I don't have the know how, and don't really know how to learn.
TED Technology Entertainment and Design… this man fulfilled all three!
Being smart differs from knowing hack i was able to differentiate that when HACKERSSUMMIT .com spy cloned my spouse device and i got access to all her dealings both on phone and social media without no stings attached ✔✔✔
what a visionary!! and a genius!
Recomendado en 2020? ?
SteamVR compatible NOW!!
I saw this when it came out, this is what opened me up to the TED talk world, wish they would do more like this!
we have this guy hacking wii remotes way back 2008 but at 2020 i cant connect it consistently to my dolphin emulator. RVL-CNT-01-TR sucks!
The cameraman was having fun! xD
If anyone wondering where is he now he has a youtube channel and a science blog where he shares lots of stuff 🙂
For me, the best tedx ever! <3
Thanks a lot!
It’s 2020 and I really want to know what happened to this man and his ideas where is he now ? Does anybody know?
PSVR forefather!!! For a fraction of the price!
wow.. 10 dolars!? and its pretty fast tracking.. why does every vr track device is over a hundred!? why cant i find a way to track using a infrared dot on the four sides of my head and one wii controller!? or even a simple modded vrbox with the wii ir camera attached on the front that tracks the position of your hands using ir leds and the rotation of wiimotes!? it would be extremely cheaper.. im gonna study just to make DIY cheap vr controllers, his demo is pretty accurate
ARE THE WE REMOTES STILL MADE LIKE THIS WHERE WE CAN TURN IT INTO A PROJECTOR/DIGITAL WHITE BOARD VIA ITS HIGH PERFORMING CAMERA LENS ON THE TIP OF THE WII REMOTE?..
OR DID THEY FIND OUT ABOUT THIS &
HATE ON US &
DESIGN IT DIFFERENTLY SO THAT WE CANT DO THIS ANYMORE?
ANYBODY KNOWLEDGABLE PLEASE REPLY SOON.
BRUH WE COULD'VE BE MAKING AR EQUIPMENT IN 2008 WITH A WII REMOTE, LAPTOP, AND A PROGRAM
no one :
ted talk : wii remote hacks
me : huh ok
damn this is still pretty impressive
GOOD MAN :v !!!
I guess I'm buying a Wii Remote.
this is my aplication wiimote from johnny Lee and Boon jin : https://youtu.be/soS0e4axYOQ
thanks for Johnny Lee and Boon jin
I have two wiimotes and I can't get them to connect to my computer. I'm sure Nintendo has something to do with it…
Nintendo finally patented this idea some days ago. Future here we come! 🙂
FBI OPEN UP
Amazing, years later and trying to use this as a cheap hydra controller
The school I attended, now shut down (Blessed Hugh Moore Secondary… I still don't know who Hugh was), had one amazing teacher, Mr Metcalf, my form teacher. He wangled a Sinclair ZX80 in 1979! (Kit form and built) ~As for his Tele typer computer space invader.. (excuse spelling/grammer), he was the Maths teacher, i'm crap at that too.
take notes Nintendo…wait
COOL! One question:Whats a "Radio Shack"?
Why isn't head tracking a thing yet? In gaming
And I want a Wii U
I got a Wii, should I hack it?
Why is this guy not developing VR for Switch
