“Ages ago, I was toying with the idea of making a DIY in-air PC mouse, and had designed it in my mind. A few days ago I saw the Wii-remote bluetooth PC controller hack and thought that it was good time to throw together my own version.
As shown on http://wiihacks.blogspot.com/ the Wii remote has been utilized as a bluetooth remote for the PC/Laptop. My version isn’t as good, as it works over PS/2, and is wired (for now!). But I always find the enjoyment is in developing your OWN firmware for devices as long as it works (messing for 2 days and still not getting it working is the ultimate frustration, luckily didn’t happen). “ – Link.

Vids or it didn’t happen
I would post on the actual site but I really can’t be bothered to sign up to another forum.
Does anyone know why he/she has used two accelerometer chips when the type they have used works on 3 axis?
I don’t know much about the chips, I’m just curious.
Each accelerometer only has 1 axis. I need 2 to get both X and Y axis. Hence why the chips are 90 degrees offset from each other.
You have the MMA7260 in your parts list, which is the three-axis version. Close inspection of the photos shows the chips as MMA2260’s :)
(I’ve got a couple MMA7260’s on their way to me now, thanks for letting me know they exist :D )
Oops, it would seem that i’ve given the game away as to what the next version will contain…
