Wiimote allows creativity for the disabled with Digital Wheel Art

I will admit that the Wiimote is not my controller of choice, but seeing it used in new and creative ways does give me the kind of warm fuzzies that only good deeds can. The image you see above was created by means of a program called Digital Wheel Art, which was created by YoungHyun Chung, who got the idea after noticing that children affected with cerebral palsy were restricted from artistic expression due to their disorder.

How does the Wiimote figure in, you ask? Well, it is attached to the wheelchair itself and broadcasts information via Bluetooth to a painting program on the screen in front of the user. My using small movements such as head tilts to change color and movement to draw lines, a disabled person can create art in a way they could not before. Sure, it's no Van Gogh, but compared to nothing, it may be a catharsis that fully physically capable people may not always realize the value of.

Amazing stuff. Check out the creator's website for more video and information.
