Johnny Chung Lee has released another interesting Wii Remote hack, following in the footsteps of his Finger Tracking and Digital White Board hacks he has now released a Head Tracking application for desktop VR displays.
Pretty tight. This could make for some pretty interesting 1-player games. Or multi player if you used separate screens.
And he sounds like Kermit the frog.
Oh, and lose some weight fat Chinese guy.
This guy is better than you killax3563.
its freaking awesome
I wonder why Nintendo haven't hired him yet.
Just you wait, just you wait... ;)
Just copy his idea, it'd be cheaper. He (Chung Lee) can't copyright this idea because it involves the Wii (something Nintendo has the copyrights on).
but with these videos he could still sue them for stealing an idea.....its easy to win a case...if you find a good attorney
how do you know? this guy has no copyright or patent, he can't copyright the wii or wii controller.
the idea is out in the public with no legal protection.
unless you can show me a legal case that shows otherwise, then you're full of BS.
its easy to start a case, just like those people who said they never knew mcdonalds would make them fat.
If he will claim that his CONCEPTs are stolen he can start a lawsuite.
even if he doesnt have any copyrights on nintendo's materials you could sue someone for taking your idea, so yes the materials arnt his but the concept is.
And thats something he could use against developers.
the video's are evidence for time and place, but i dont think he will sue anyone since he said: " i wanna see some games"
and how would i know? i've been listening to a guy for 10000 of hours every morning about concepts and copyrights and what not!
dont even go there because its hard enough already!
let me put it this way:
if you take away the controller and only talk about infra-red...you still have the same concept.
well, you are very, very, very wrong if you think it would be an easy case. show me some actual legal cases that make u think it would be easy. Apple tried to sue Microsoft for 'stealing' the idea of using 'windows' for an OS and they lost.
'.... just like those people who said they never knew mcdonalds would make them fat.'
What does McDonalds have to do with this anyways? Where the fvck did that dumb idea come from? Has no relation.
so what if you've spend many hours in front of lecture? it doesn't matter. are you in high school? are u an undergraduate? are you in law school? either way it doesn't matter (even if you are in law school, ur no expert b/c experts have actual legal cases to back up their claim).
BTW, sidar, how old are you? r u still a fvcking teenager? hopefully not...b/c....LMAO....never mind.
Since you cant talk in a normal way it just shows how ignorant you really are.
But i'm not going to argue this with you, if you don't believe me then don't.
who said anything about winning the case ? i said if you have a good attorney then you have chance of winning. i said its easy to start a case, dont read stuff out of context douchebag.
Mcdonals was just an example of how easy things could go.
no reason for being a douche.
btw if im so wrong why dont you provide me with some evidence ? but nevermind that because it seems you scream at others pretending to be an expert, so no reason to argue this further.
well, how old are you? are you ashamed of ur age?
"...who said anything about winning the case ?"
get the fvck out of here. you says so in you post 3.3.
"...its easy to win a case...if you find a good attorney.."
I can't talk 'normal' because you make no sense. Arguing with you is like arguing with a damn monkey. only way i can get a point to you is by smashing it in ur face.
btw, the mcdonalds example was horrible. and look up the case of apple vs. microsoft, you lazy dumba$$ monkey sh!t.
i see you have a fetish for monkey sh/t. btw mind the IF, it seems monky see monky do. dont act like an ass hahah.
and still no hard evidence....tsk tsk tsk.
First one to stoop into personal insults usually either loses all appeal he might have had for his cause, or doesn't find proper arguments thus trying to humiliate opponent. That's all I have to say about this argument...
Just ordered my bluetooth adapter of Ebay... wow I hope it comes soon! This is going to be so sweet.
Wiinmote is also a cool program...wtf...someone disagreed =/
I applaud this guy for coming up with this concept.
Hopefully, Nintendo is taking notes on it.
wow that was way more innovative, than what Wii is offering now.
Check his other videos like finger tracking or that projecting. Awesome.
This guy is awesome.
I swear that target was coming out of the tv!
Im sure some dev will pick this guy up
i wonder how this would work in a FPS enviroment where the image isn't static, or 1 screen.. where your walking thru a city or something i mean you can only get so close to the TV.. though this would be cool in museums and stuff or for educational purposes.. and yes it looks amazing but in the end i don't know how well head tracking would help with FPS games (other then for dodging and what not)
back in the day i had 3D glasses and a video card for it.. and i played HL1 like that.. it took a lil hit in frame rate but looks cool cause it was 3D but after a bit i was like.. MEH.. it turned out to be just a fad.. and again it only worked for 1 person..
but awsome stuff
Wow that is fricken nuts, I really hope Nintendo hires that guy.
Seriously, that is awesome. I wish I kept my Wii just to try this out.
Don't need a Wii. Just a Wiimote which you can buy for fairly cheap. Bluetooth card in your computer. And some infrared lights :P.
I would like to see this be done with games....I wonder how Mario G will look using this concept?
