Hi all,

I am a student at the Entertainment Technology Center (http://www.etc.cmu.edu) at Carnegie Mellon.  Our project for spring semester involves creating an exercise game for children aged 11-14 where we will hopefully use a wiimote.  Currently we are attempting to find the best way to utilize the wiimote, so I will likely be looking for help from all of you.

Thanks
Seth

Hi,

Interesting project, exercise you say? Like in a gym? That's definately a good thing (just look how many children are obesed). Anyway, if you're going to read the accelero data from the wiimote, make sure you make a graph drawer of it first, that'll help you understand the input from the wiimote  ;D (at least for me)

Greetings,
Bart

We are trying to make it based around and action adventure game so that the story drives the player to be active.  We are still working with the hardware attempting to figure out the best way to use it, especially with kids.

We are working on our project website, when it is available I can post it.
