Half-Life 2 played in PC through Wiimote

We’re already got some bajillions worth of content relating to smithereen’d TV sets all because of Wiimote accidents. We’re not one to repeat ourselves, but for the nth time: when you go Wii bowling, you just release the B button and not the controller itself. Comprende?

Now, onto other matters, maybe we could expect a couple of smashed computer monitors in the near future as well. It turns out that the recently released GlovePIE driver is sound technology and that you really can use your Wiimote for the PC. The motion-sensing aspect is a tad bit limited, true. However, the point here, really, is that it works.

This video uploaded by Bl4ckFr0g shows us a demo of the said “controller emulator.” He’s playing Half-Life 2 on his Mac with the Wiimote, and despite being (admittedly) sucky with the game, he gave a rather informative commentary. Check it out:

This GlovePIE software is still in its early Wiimote-to-PC stage, and it could happen that the limited motion-sensing capabilities would eventually develop to an expanded functionality.

So, are we expecting smashed PC monitors soon? What with exploding laptop batteries bursting into the scene, there’s definitely some room left for some broken glass monitors and FUBAR’ed liquid displays to show up.
