Creating swords should be quite easy, I guess. Basically you just take a stick and wrap three pieces of reflecting tape around it. Two of them close to the handle and one at the tip (or the other way round, doesn't really matter). Tracking the position of the blade should work the same way as the head tracking project. Maybe you could also use a second Wiimote as the handle if you need buttons. Additionally, you could use it for getting more information about the orientation of the "blade" while it's not completely visible.

P.S.: Almost forgot to mention. I don't have a Wiimote yet, so I can't try this on my own. If someone likes the idea, I'd really like to see a video.
