I’ve recently enrolled in the minor “Interacive Media Products”, which is taught by the Mediatechnology department.
Some YouTube clips I’ve created that have some affiliation with this minor:
Part of my minor “Interactive Media Products”, creating a disposable game-controller that’s cheap and vandal proof.
These controllers are made of corrugated fiberboard, a battery (377A or CR2032) and an IR led. Costs are around 10 to 15 eurocents.
They can be used as a promotional item, having your company logo or business card on them.
Also great for risky areas where you just don’t want an expensive wireless controller laying around waiting to be stolen.
Uses a Wiimote and IR leds, works smoother and more stable than regular webcam motion-capture that uses markers or your body.

Updated prototype. This time with a more solid controller using a more suited IR LED. Cost for these controllers are now at about 2 dollar (but can be a lot less when bought in large quantities).
As you can see, with these low cost controllers, you can play a game with up to 8 simultaneous players (4 are demonstrated in this movie).
The display and Wiimotes can be protected by a plexiglass plate, so you’ll only risk someone taking the cheap disposable game controllers.
Great for demonstrating a product or letting people play a game.

Using the same technique as Pablo Valbuena to create an augmented sculpture.
You see a small table standing in the room. The projector is projecting an image on top of this table, where each side of the table has its own color. This way, it’s possible to change the table to every color you want.
Please do note that this was purely an experiment to try out this technique.
