An Idea is BornJohnny Chung Lee developed the Wii Remote in 2007. He is a researcher for Microsoft and has his PH.D. in Human Computer Interaction from Carnegie Mellon University.

“I think the interface controls of the Wii remote are quite innovative. I think the Wii remote is one of the most sophisticated input devices available today and I think a lot of developers are still struggling to wrap their brains around how to use the data effectively because it is so different than what they are used to from previous generations.” Johnny Chung Lee, January 28, 2008
