Thanks for the great guide; I'm sure we'll be using it when we get to that point.  We're still on the building phase though which goes slowly with school and all.

You only need to power up the wii to power up the led bar that comes with the wii, Assuming you have a wii and are using it for the demo. However if you go buy a wiimote by itself you will need to make a "led bar" or some variant of that and power the leds.

The led bar that comes with the Wii is just 2 IR leds, nothing more.

Hope that helps

Thanks, that clears up a lot of confusion and potentially saves a lot of money.  This will make for much easier testing of our ideas.

The wii itself is not needed. You can simply go buy a replacement wiimote and use that.

That's what I'd thought, but I thought I heard Johnny say in his head tracking video that you had to power up the wii...  must've heard wrong, thanks for the correction.

So my friend and I don't have a Wii and aren't interested in buying an entire Wii just to use the Wiimote.  Our problem lies in the fact that in order to implement the Wiimote, one first has to power up the Wii console itself.  With that in mind, does anyone know how to power a Wiimote w/o a Wii?

I'm a high schooler in Terre Haute, IN and my friend and I are particularly interested in developing the IR Finger-Tracking system of Johnny Chung Lee's.
