With the rapid development of digital home and interactive games, the traditional remote controller with simple key-press functions can not meet the increasing requirement of various applications. We proposed a mouse-type handwritten input and strong interactive functions to replace the traditional button-based input and control mode provided by current simple remote controller. In this paper, an infrared motion capture based wireless sensor interactive system is proposed. At first, an infrared camera is used to capture the motion and position of infrared points. Then, we map the point in 3 dimensional spaces to the point in screen to control the menu. This system extends the traditional remote control functions, and it can be used to control the menus on TV and home devices in 3-D ways. Besides, the applications based on this system, such as Media Walls, Interactive Games, Electronic white board and so on, can bring a brand new control experience to user.
