Wiimote Powered Self Portrait Generator

This is my first experiment using the open source framework WiiFlash. It is an AIR application built using Flash in which the user can generate a Cubist self portrait by pointing a Wiimote at an Infrared light. Webcam footage is masked and layered using a variety of shapes and lines, the propeties of which can be altered using the Wiimote controls.

The controls are as follows:

B adds shapes to the stage
A gives the pseudo random positioning effect
+ increases the scale of the shapes
– decreases the scale of the shapes
up/right increases the alpha of the lines
down/left decreases the alpha of the lines

The AIR app and source code will be available to download soon. You will however need a Wiimote, a bluetooth dongle, the WiiFlash server installed, a webcam and an Infrared light to use it.
