Wiimote in term of Human-Computer Interface

[English Version]

Researchs in Motion Tracking, Gesture Recognition, Text Entry and Immersive environments cover the field of Human-Computer Interface. After several posts(1 , 2 , 3), the following new developments use and improve, again, the wiimote for a 3-dimensionnal interaction between the user and the computer.
