Nintendo Wiimote Acceleration Sensor Reading

Fun & Games

There’s been a lot of progress made with dissecting the operation of the Wiimote. This video was recently posted on youtube, showing a PC MATLAB graph of the Wii’s acceleration sensor data. Since this data is now technically available on the PC via bluetooth, it shouldn’t be too long before someone puts together a Wiimote enabled PC game.

The Wiimote wiki entry is a great resource if you’re interested in experimenting with this. [via] – Link.
