I just started an open hardware project as a building block for all sorts of head tracking related Wiimote projects:

It either uses up to 9 IR-LEDs mounted at the Wiimote-TFT-fitting pointing toward the users head and two to four reflective markers at the tracking gear.
Alternatively you can place two to four 5mm IR-LEDs in tight fitting holes in the tracking gear.

You can use the "kit 2" for monoscopic and stereoscopic (!) VR and gaming projects.

For monoscopic projects, you simply download the EPS/SVG layout files and take them with a sheet of PET-G plastics (250x250x1 mm) to a laser cutting service. The layouts are licensed under (CC) Creative Commons "Attributed" licence.

For stereoscopic projects, you also need the KMQ prism glasses or you can order the pre-cut-DIY-kit "kit 2".
To reduce shipping charges, I look for worldwide enthusiasts to join in providing these kits for your community.

I want to update:
We now have a kit provider for sweden. Please contact: Anders Kjellberg akj [-at-] maxicap.se
Others with access to laser cutting are still invited to join as kit providers. Please also stand up - or spread the news ;D to support this idea.
