Wiimote control on Linux

Wiinux?e-Hernick is working on a “driver” for linux to use the Wiimote. Of course, it’s “driver” in quotes, because it’s not really a driver as it doesn’t have any kernel-mode code. In fact, it is simply a python script. Here’s what e-Hernick had to say about the python script he’s so proud of:

OH YEAH! I am now controlling the XORG MOUSE with the WIIMOTE IR, with the use of my very own wiimotulator.py!

Requirements: Linux 2.6 with evdev and uinput, Xorg 7.0 with evdev BlueZ, PyBluez 0.9.1, a Wiimote, 2 IR emitters of some sort (even candles work apparently!)

Oh, and feel free to check out the read link that we have below. The people in the comments section there are eager to try this out on their PS3s, although they haven’t come up with anything conclusive so far. Still, and nice bit of reading for you folks (unless you guys really don’t like to read).
