This paper presents a novel approach to train how to juggle using a sensor system based on one of the most commercial, sophisticated and accessible input devices, the Wii Remote controller. This platform, particularly its infrared camera, is used to develop a real-time sensor system for hand motion tracking and ﬁt it into a virtual reality interface. The quality of our algorithm was tested through this 3D virtual interface, which has the ﬁnality to give the user visual feedback of his/her hand positions, and created for the user the sensation of juggling.
