Hi!

I have been contemplating using 1 wiimote for headtracking applications. But seems that with 1 wiimote , getting full 6DOF info is rather difficult due to the big mathermatics behind. Does anybody know if using 2 wiimote have any advantage over 1 wiimote ? Do we get any further information combing two wiimotes or no it's just concidered as two seperate measurement from different angles which are combined together and the result is a more robust and accurate estimate?!!

Thanks for assistance!

I think this is possible, since you can put the wiimotes at the sides with the whiteboard in the middle, forming a triangle. using the calibration for both wiimotes, the accuracy of the pen is determined by the mean of the coordinates from both wiimotes. If this is completed, then only the distance between wiimotes and whiteboard will be the consideration. (can just put the wiimotes anywhere as long as they points to the screen)
