Since 6 degree of freedom joysticks generally are custom built and are not commercially available, this project attempts to give a non DIY solution which the user only needs a Wii Remote and webcam (also Bluetooth adapter).
What it does
Currently it reads orientation information from the Wii Remote and attempts to approximate the world position using the webcam for object tracking.
How I built it
Used C++ for reading information from the Wii Remote and using OpenCV for location data. Used Unity for visualizing the results of the input data.
Challenges I ran into
Accuracy of motion detection.
What I learned
Computer Vision, Inter process communication, Unity.
What's next for 6 DOF Wii Remote Joystick
Refining the accuracy of world coordinate detection and possibly creating a driver.
