hello.
I was thinking about this for some time and came up with the idea of plotting your fingers in 3D space. this could be done with 2 wiimotes a defined distance apart, both parallel to each other. the images from the wiimotes could be compared to work out the 3D location of your fingers. it would work the same way as the human eyes. any thoughts on the subject would be appreciated.

I succeeded in building such a little application by simply computing the difference between the x position of the strongest IR source of each wiimote. It results in a progress bar that fills it up when I move a candle forward and decreases when I make the candle going back. I put also a control screen that display the x/y position of the candle as detected by each of the two wiimotes. It works very well and now I want to going further !

Thanks for the source, but I wont be able to try it out for a few weeks because I'm going on holiday for a while. I can't wait try it out though. I'll be thinking of possible implementations of this software while I'm away.
