Make That WiiMote Work With Your PC
Turns out someone figured how to make the Nintendo Wii Remote (affectionately known as the WiiMote) interface with a PC, of the Windows, Mac, and Linux variety. You just need the following:
- 1 Bluetooth Dongle (Cirago, $15)
- 1 Nintendo Wii Remote($36, free shipping)
Then, you can follow the instructions here. Personally though, I’m not sure if there are any worthy WiiMote apps for the computer. Yes, you can at the very least use a PC-enabled Wii Remote as a mouse (on Windows your use Wiinmote). But as anyone who’s played a Wii FPS will tell you, waving around a stick is nothing compared to precision-moving a mouse on top of the table.
