Well, looks like we invading the board  ;)

I'm 24, student in Marketing & Communication Design and very interested in all the new technologies that will shape future of handling computers.
It's only been a month or two since I've first seen "multitouch" in action and became exited about the concept. So I bought an iPhone and started building my own multitouch table. But now Johnny showed those amaaaaazing video's with the WiiMote and my life is over... :P I really want to start developing stuff, but there are too much choices!

Bought a WiiMote today, haven't got a Wii though. Tried some stuff with only TV/DVD/Receiver remotes, but they don't do the trick. They flicker on and off constantly, so the program never knows which one is which. Tomorrow I'll go buy me some infrared LED's and start playing :)

Oh and btw, hi!

Yeah, here we come!!! ;D

I like this project! Bought a bluetooth-adapter just for this purpose, and its working :D. Haven't been able to buy any IR-led's because i dont know where to buy them here in Holland.

BTW: Im 15 years old, to be 16 in March. Came here through those wonderfull movies by Johnny Chung Lee at youtube.

I guess there are lots of shops that sell IR LEDs, probably most electronic/light stores.

In Berlicum (near Den Bosch) is a shop that specializes in LED lights. I'm going to check at a local store tomorow, but if you want to order them online this would probably be a nice place to start.

I'm still looking for those slick LED Glasses Johnny uses in the video, I would be amazed if one of the local hardware stores got them here...
