Other / Re: super sensor bar electronics help

I tried making my own sensor bar as well, but it seems to be dead.

I used a 33 Ohm resistor in series with two Radio Shack IR LEDs and 4 AAAs + switch.

Voltmeter says the connections are good but the Wiimote does not see it.  It worked for a bit, but after I squeezed it in a box it seems dead.

Think I burned out the LEDs?  Wrong resistor?

Or did I break a contact and I don't know how to use a voltmeter?

My background is chemistry+computer, so solder and electricity is sketchy...

Project Ideas / Re: Motion Controller?

I know the PS3 motion controller is not out, but has anyone seen tech specs?  I saw one report that it is basically a webcam that can run at 60 or 120 Hz at various (fairly low) resolutions.

My real question is, does it require a USB run to the TV?  All my wires are in-wall, and it would be a PITA to run a 30 ft USB cable in the mess I have...

And if it is just a web cam + wiimote type controller + big glowing ball, how hard is that to port / use in homebrew PC applications?

Couldn't the Wiimote just add a glowing ball as well?  Not to cover the sensor, but maybe on a finger guard?  Starts to get messy/expensive with wiimote+motion plus+glowing ball+rubber cover+rechargable battery pack...

Maybe this is the wrong PS3 thread?

Thanks!  I found the PS3 deal this AM and it looks promising too.

I have read a few threads here and other places, but it is not clear about the support for motion plus in any Wiimote package.  Glovepie, Wiiuse, Opera SDK? 

Anyone with a clue know anything?
