Iago,

The first time "Wiimote" hacking popped onto my radar was for map/globe navigation, published over on Coding4Fun:

From Mr. Lee's demo, you can see where that "spread-out" technique with the fingers moving apart can be used to zoom in and out of a map, but also to zoom in and out of pictures, like Jeff Hahn shows in his TED presentation of his multi-touch display:

I think the great thing about Mr. Lee's innovation here is that he's demonstrated extremely cost-effective motion tracking.
