MIX09: Interaction Techniques Using the Wii Remote (and Other HCI Projects)
The Wii remote is a sophisticated controller containing a variety of sensing capabilities. In this session, Johnny Lee covers several interaction techniques enabled by the Wii remote and explains how you can develop your own applications. Johnny also introduces a few of his other research projects in the broader domain of Human-Computer Interaction.
Johnny Chung Lee is a Researcher at Microsoft Applied Sciences. He is a recent graduate of the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University and a winner of Technology Review’s TR35. Johnny’s past research has explored a variety of input and output technologies, ranging from multi-touch systems, spatially augmented reality, haptics, immersive audio, to brain-computer interfaces. A theme throughout his work has been to increase the accessibility and reach of interactive technology. His recent projects with the Nintendo Wii remote have startled and inspired the education and gaming communities, demonstrating simple, yet powerful ideas that are readily accessible to millions of people around the world.
