Ahh, nice to be back in the Bay Area.  We haven't played an ECC show here since before Burning Man, so high time that we show you all what's been happening in the lab.  And what has been happening?  The invention of an awesome video screen controller hacked from a Wii game controller. We'll show it off three times in the next 10 days... details below.  And below that: details on two radio events this week.  Tune in!


Video Control ScreenDorkbot

"TradeMark G. of The Evolution Control Committee (www.Evolution-Control.Com) shows off a video controller for live mashups.  Based on Johnny Chung Lee's Wiimote whiteboard hack, this rear-projected infrared-based faux touchscreen ended up being the solution for a performance bottleneck problem -- specifically, mousing quickly and accurately enough for live laptop show.  Oh, and it looks one metric assload of a lot better on stage too."
