I was wondering if anyone could give me some help on finding an area to do wiimote research in.  I have my senior research this semester and would like to do something with wii remotes.  However, I'm not sure what areas I could do research in.  It also needs to be something I could do in one semester, so 3 to 3.5 months.

Thanks!!

Chris

Use two wii remotes to track IR dots in 3D space. Join this with Virtual reality to make a 3D musical instrument.

OR.

Hang a projector and a Wiiremote from a ceiling or a tall framework and point it down to the floor. Create a simple video game to help preschoolers learn their letters, numbers, shapes, and colors.

Have the item to be learn floating around on the floor. Ask the little one to find say, the A, or the circles. Create an IR pen like hat for each student. When the Video game detects the the IR dot in the region of the target object, it freezes and does a cool colorful, light and sound celebration.
