the wii uses a pretty standard accelerometer in the controller. it's very much the same thing in most new laptops as well as the lower end virtual reality orientation trackers.

they CAN do position tracking in 3d space, but they are error prone because they have no baselines/datums to reference other than the accelerations.

here's the basic standard product used in the virtual reality industry.

****; I'm even older than what I feel!

I still want one of those gadgets. I'd love to see some car racing from the cockpit with those glasses on. Man, even a golf tournament!
