Who knew you could do this with a Wii remote?

When I watched this YouTube video, I thought to myself "who knew that a Nintendo Wii remote can be used to create a simple interactive whiteboard?" As a casual video gamer myself, I never thought of how the infrared (IR) technology at the end of a Wii remote controller can have potential implications in the K-12 classroom; especially for school districts with limited technology budgets. Although the ideas presented in this video are innovative and exciting, they do pose some limitations. Nevertheless, gaming devices, or gaming in general, will have educational implications. What are your thoughts?
