Title: VR Desktop For Compiz
Post by: OasisGames on March 12, 2008, 05:25:26 PM
This is still in its experimental stages, but:
The Wiitrack plugin for Compiz, combined with the Wiimote plugin, gives your desktop a truly 3d feel by implementing the same tracking functions used by Johnny Chung Lee, but in Compiz's OpenGL environment.

Note: The video is old and the person recording it did not spend any time calibrating. Nor did they listen to my suggestions >_>

Rather than bore you with the details, I'll just link you to the Wiki page (http://wiki.compiz-fusion.org/Plugins/Wiitrack).

Congrats OasisGames!
I agree with you about the calib and the movie.
And ... today all wiki links end up in 0 Bytes HTML files.
I look forward to visit the wiki  8) and want to work on a full stereo3D enhancement.

Have you recently checked my open hardware wireless Wiimote tracking kit "openKMQKit2" :
