Python + Motion detection = Fweemote

It's basically a webcam & some software in python to track LED's (preferrably IR's). In the demo video you see the software (albeit badly because of the webcam's IR filter being removed) tracking 2 different color LED's so multiplayer is possible. The software can track multiple points easily and when combined with IR-LED's its easy to simulate one Wiimote (ie. calculateing the distance + angle between two IR-leds to determine where the remote is relatively to the webcam). I want the code to get some publicity becauseI don't have time to work on it (dissertation blabla) but I don't want the code (however messy it is) to go to waste."
