Building 3 Auditorium - 3:30 PM
(Refreshments at 3:00 PM)

Since its release, the Nintendo Wii has sold over 30 million consoles worldwide. This makes its controller, the Wii remote one of the most common input devices in the world. It also happens to be one of the most sophisticated containing a variety of impressive sensing capabilities. In this talk, I will cover a several interaction techniques enabled by the Wii remote and explain how you can develop your own. I will also briefly overview a few of my other research projects in the broader domain of Human-Computer Interaction.

Johnny Lee recently joined Microsoft's Applied Sciences group after graduating from Carnegie Mellon University with a PhD in Human-Computer Interaction. His past work has spanned a broad range of topics from projector calibration, motion tracking, multi-point interaction, haptics, animation, filmmaking, immersive audio, to brain-computer interfaces. He was recently recognized in Technology Review's 2008 TR35 list, featured as one of the top 10 TED talks, and has received over 10 million views on YouTube.
