Johnny Lee Demonstrates the Future

A couple of weeks ago I posted about the Wii Head Tracking hack that uses the Nintendo Wii and $10 to create a prototype 3D display that would normally costs $10,000’s. Mr Lee was also responsible for this amazing demo of foldable displays, also using the Wii.

Johnny Lee recently gave a demonstration at the future technology TED conference. In it demonstrates an interactive whiteboard created using the Wii. This sort of technology normally costs $3000 dollars and is outside the price range of most schools. With Mr Lee’s hack, they can have it for a $200, and many schools are doing it. His software has been downloaded half a million times and he has received all sorts of feedback from teachers and pupils.

Watch the video, its five minutes of a smart man showing off world-changing technology in a way that anyone can understand.
