One small problem is each Wiimote can only detect up to 4 sources of
infrared at a time so you would need at a minimum 4 Wiimotes. Also
since infrared is line of site depending on location you may need more
then 4 Wiimotes to track 16. (I know it is possible for infrared to
see through walls but it is restricted to the direction it is pointing
at any given time, also I don't know if the Wiimotes has the ability
to see through walls.)


It contains a 1024x768 infrared camera with built-in hardware blob
tracking of up to 4 points at 100Hz.
