What else !! can be done with WII remote

Nintendo claims that 60 million WII consoles have been sold worldwide as of March 2009. 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 device. It contains a 1024x768 infrared camera with built-in hardware blob tracking upto 4 points at 100Hz. This significantly out performs any PC "webcam" available today. It also contains a +/-3g 8-bit 3-axis accelerometer also operating at 100Hz and an expandsion port for even more capability.
