Hi all,

I know this place is all about Wiimote,but can anyone try to fight it out how to do it using a webcam?
I've been doing some Johnny Chung Lee Wiimote programming, and am running into problems with the Wiimote's relatively narrow field-of-view and limit of four points.
So, my question: I'd like to find a C#.Net camera / vision library that lets me track points - probably LEDs - in the camera's
field of view. In the future, I'd like to move to R/G/B point tracking  so as to allow more points to be tracked and distinguished more easily.
Any suggestions?

You may wish to head over to the NUI group. There are lots of interesting projects over there. You will need a powerful machine to do all of the tracking yourself, especially for more then 4 blobs. The Wiimote takes care of a lot of processing itself, if I'm not mistaken.

Just use multiple wiimotes, it would be cheaper than any camera with high enough res to match the camera on the wiimote.
