Minority Report Screen Using Silverlight and a Wiimote

Turns out there are many interesting applications for the Wiimote other than gaming. And now people are starting to really take advantage of this. Cynergy Labs has created a Silverlight (WPF) application that uses custom gloves with IR bulbs on three fingers for a whole new way of interfacing with the on-screen content. The result is a Minority Report or Microsoft Surface like experience without a touch-sensitive screen. Just wave your hands around and use gestures to control the content. This video shows the versatility of both WPF, Silverlight and the Wiimote.
