You can buy a Wiimote for about $35 and do all sorts of experiments with it, and you don’t even need a beamer for it… a computerscreen will suffice.
After checking the above demo out I came across another experiment with the Wiimote and spraying. It’s really impressive to see the accuracy of the Wiimote, especially when you consider that it will be even better with the updated version (soon to be released):
