Thats pretty sweet!  Wiimotes are pretty powerful for what they are.

I "think" the wiimotes are just tracking the hands.  It looks like IR is being projected out from the wiimote stands.  The IR is then reflected off the users hands to get a reading from the wiimotes.  I've seen that done before

It's because there is so much easy interfacing code for them and they are ridiculously cheap! I can buy a nunchuck for ~$8 and it looks good, anything I make for myself if going to look like crap probably and not work as well!
