Johnny Chung Lee - Projects - Wii
As of June 2008, Nintendo has sold nearly 30 million Wii game consoles. This significantly exceeds the number of Tablet PCs in use today according to even the most generous estimates of Tablet PC sales. This makes the Wii Remote one of the most common computer input devices in the world. It also happens to be one of the most sophisticated. It contains a 1024x768 infrared camera with built-in hardware blob tracking of up to 4 points at 100Hz. This significantly out performs any PC "webcam" available today. Any software on this page is primarily meant for developers and may not run without proper the development tools installed. NOTE: For most of these projects, you don't need the Nintendo Wii console. Coming Later: 3D tracking, and more.... Unfortunately, time constraints in the next couple of months have significantly reduced my ability to work on more projects.

SixthSense - a wearable gestural interface (MIT Media Lab) 'SixthSense' is a wearable gestural interface that augments the physical world around us with digital information and lets us use natural hand gestures to interact with that information. We've evolved over millions of years to sense the world around us. When we encounter something, someone or some place, we use our five natural senses to perceive information about it; that information helps us make decisions and chose the right actions to take. But arguably the most useful information that can help us make the right decision is not naturally perceivable with our five senses, namely the data, information and knowledge that mankind has accumulated about everything and which is increasingly all available online. Although the miniaturization of computing devices allows us to carry computers in our pockets, keeping us continually connected to the digital world, there is no link between our digital devices and our interactions with the physical world. . . . some more pictures are coming soon.

Pumping Station: One: Arduino Bluetooth Interfacing Howdy - For the Great Global Hackerspace Challenge, our Pumping Station: One team is building a biosensor array. The array consists of sensors placed around one's body connected to an Arduino also attached to the body. Software running on a computing device like a laptop or smartphone will visualize and log the biosignal data. We decided the best way to connect the on-body Arduino to the computing device is via Bluetooth. I'd like to give a brief overview of interfacing an Arduino with a Bluetooth module to help you avoid the few bumps I encountered:
