[News] Video - Controlling the Linux Desktop Cube with Wiimote

Rotating the compiz cube using a Wiimote

,----[ Quote ]
| Today, David has brought his Wiimote at Mandriva office so that we
| make some experiments with the Wiimote linux drivers. I've started
| with WMD, which is a python program that can generate input events
| based on the info sent by the Wiimote (on Bluetooth).

| For the first time, you can hit your computer and get a meaningful
| response! Using Linux and the Hard Drive Active Protection System
| (HDAPS) kernel drivers, you can access the embedded accelerometers on
| Lenovo (formerly IBM) ThinkPads, then process the accelerometer data
| to read specific sequences of "knocking" events -- literally rapping on
| the laptop case with your knuckles -- and run commands based on those
| knocks. Double tap to lock the screen, and knock in your secret code
| to unlock. Tap the display lid once to move your mp3 player to the
| next track. The possibilities are endless.

| Well I got this nice christmas present a Wii remote!

FlightGear + Wiimote

| With thanks to WMD, you could use the Wiimote under Linux fairly easily.
| For those who don't know Wiimote talks to the Wii console via bluetooth.
| So it works with any computer with bluetooth as well.
