Research Project: Performance Animation using Wii controllers

Part I:

Find and read as much information about Wii-motes as possible. Learn about its properties, functions, capabilities, etc. Determine the direction in which to advance the research project.

Part II:

Research project's area: Performance Interface.
The research goal: Run a motion-capture session while simultaneously recording acceleration data from the Wii-motes and motion data from the retro-reflective markers. Use this information to find ways to interactively control character animation.
