Maya Wiimote

This video shows me controlling a cube in Maya with candle-light using a wii-remote.
It's created by using Python and pyBluez to connect to the wii-remote with bluetooth and bind it to Maya.
Each Wiimote has an infrared-camera in it, and since candle-light emits infrared light, it's possible to track the motion of the candles.
This could be extended to create a simple and cheep motion-capture device.
