It's not exactly what we are trying to do but he has some interesting results using the Wiimote to track fingers and pens on a display.

And if you close your eyes while he's talking you can almost hear Marvin the Martian.

I'm going to email him.

I wonder how easy it would be to add a pressure sensor?

I don't think it would be super difficult, assuming you can easily find pressure sensors that would fit inside a normal Wacom-sized pen. The pen would probably have to be wired though, to power the sensor and feed the info back to the computer. Not a big deal.

But I wonder how precise that thing can be? I would imagine that the sensor in the Wii remote isn't anything with a super high resolution, so precision may suffer. The tracking is occasionally a little spotty, even with the Wii. Still, it'd be a fun project, especially since those remotes are only $40 (and I've already got 4 anyway, haha)
