This is a small presentation of a university project I have worked on for the last 6 months.

Using a real-time system the orientation of the Wii Remote is polled and sent to the Stäubli TX 60 industrial robot.

This was done at the chair Robotics and Embedded Systems Knoll of the Technical University of Munich.
