That is probably the most amazing thing I have ever seen. I just wanna let you know that the only reason I registered for this site was to comment on this video here.

So, how exactly is it set up? Is there a computer in the box with the projector...projecting on the back side of the screen? Then the Wiimote picks up infrared lights from the gloves, being reflected buy the foil? Am I close? I would kill to make a setup like this. Even if my knowledge on programming wouldn't enable me to do anything beyond what you can already download, I would love to build a unit like this from making homebrew Wii games that are sure to come out of the woodworks in time.

Thanks everyone.  The box is powered by my computer outside of the box.  The whole thing is like an extra monitor for me.  The screen gets image from a projector being thrown off a mirror to increase distance and size.  The gloves are my own little project.  I wired infrared LEDs with an open circuit in the ground wire.  the open circuit points are ended with the foil, so when i touch my fingers together, the foil completes the circuit and lights the LED.  I wrote the program to detect one LED as a cursor and if a second LED appears anywhere, it acts as a mouse click for the coordinates of the first.

Oh, haha. That's awesome. I never would have thought about the gloves with finger touching to complete the circuit. That's genius in it's simplicity. I'm actually thinking I may try to throw something together myself, so if I ever actually do, I probably throw the youtube video here, since I doubt it'll be that different from yours. Once again, I applaud this for its awesomeness.

WAY COOL



Was that "BumpTop" running there?

If so, I'd love to see a step by step "How-To"

sorry, I don't know what BumpTop is.

Just to update you, I have begun a new project that is going to be pretty awesome.  I am currently recruiting some more members to join the team and even people to fund it.  It involves two Wiimotes, 2 computers, some glasses, and three 110" screens that are all multitouch.  The concept  i came up with is grabbing an object on a screen from your vision perspective and being able to move it in real space across the screens.  And, of course you will be able to multitouch as well.  This will be in progress for a while.

Wow, I can not wait to see that. Meanwhile, I'll just be trying to overcome problems I'm having with synching my wiimote to my laptop. Hahahaha.
