Programming by Demonstration for the Nintendo Wii

Quite impressive, you can simply demonstrate the gestures you want the Nintendo Wiimote to recognize.

I wonder if it uses a simple linear classifier? I also wonder what their threshold value is for recognizing gestures, since it seems to be able to classify things as unknown gestures. Lastly, how good is the performance? The program seemed to have a slight lag in recognizing gestures, but the Nintendo sports game I tried out seems to respond quite well.

Wow, that is neat. Seems to have some interesting implications for programming games in the future.

We'll see if I can work in Nintendo Wii controllers for the SAUI class next year.
