Wiimote controls a synthesizer

Now that we’ve established that the Wiimote is somewhat easy to modify for different control uses, what else can use the darned thing? According to this video, the Wiimote can also control a synthesizer.

We’ve had a couple of different hacks done to let people use their Wiimote differently. On the silly side, there’s isnoop‘s WiiSaber that lets people use their Wiimote to make lightsaber sounds. To control operating systems, the DarwiinRemote is currently being developed by Hiroaki and Ian Rickard to control Mac applications. The WiinRemote, on the other hand, lets you use the Wiimote as a mouse on Windows and has also spawned different ways of using it, such as Winamp control through Wiimote usage which can be seen here.

This next video shows off someone using the Wiimote to control a Nord Lead synthesizer. One thing we wish the video would show is the placement of the lights that help triangulate the Wiimote’s position. Heck, is it even needed in this case? We’ll definitely need to get out hands on the plans for that device as soon as possible. Mostly because we want to see if we can get it to control our video editing software like something straight out of “Minority Report”.
