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.

The Kama Wireless Nunchuck is compatible with all Nintendo Wii software that utilizes the Nunchuk attachment and requires no additional …read more
If you were a child of the 1970’s and 1980’s like me then you probably remember the Nintendo (NES) Entertainment System and the Super Nintendo gaming systems.
I’m guessing that a lot of the Gadget Blog readers might still own fully working console systems and have a box full of dusty game cartridges like I do as well.
Well for you gamers who don’t have the original console systems anymore because your mom sold them at a garage sale or donated them to charity, this is for you:

The Retro Duo is awesome! I have one as a back …read more
