Wiimote head tracking and touch stuff

WiimoteI was shown these Johnny Lee youtube videos of his remarkably cool wiimote hacks and I feel an urge to make sure you lot don’t miss out these gems:

Head Tracking for Desktop VR Displays using the WiiRemote


Low-Cost Multi-touch Whiteboard using the Wiimote

They really make me want one of these to play with. Unfortunately, all the software Johnny’s done for this that is available on his site seems to be C# for Windows! ;-(

Rockbox on gsoc 2008?

GoogleRockbox tinyThere is reason to suspect that there’s an upcoming announcement from Google about their Summer of Code 2008, so for the Rockbox project it might be just about time to start thinking about what particular projects we’d like to see done this time!

Of course it is also time to look back on how we performed last year and to consider what we should improve to make sure we do it better this time (should we be accepted again). After all, we got 4 projects assigned, two are now in SVN, one was a complete failure and one was half-done.
