Shake control your music – Wii remote + Linux

Walter sent is this fun way to control your music, he writes –

“Today I hacked my christmas present. A Wii remote controls my xmms mp3 player in linux now. Shake the remote and it switches to a new song.

To get this working in ubunto linux you need the following packages: WMD driver 0.1.2 xmms control python files written by myself. Read the README’s in the .tar.gz’s for install instructions “Link.
