I’m going to say first off, I’m not a Wii supporter and I want it to die a horrible, horrible death but there’s a Mac in the video so I thought I’d post it. Actually, if you’re a true Wii fanboy, you’ll probably know about this capability but I thought I’d give you a heads up if you didn’t.
Apparently the Wiimote is going to be sold separate and being bluetooth can be used with a machine with bluetooth capability as long as the drivers are available. Someone has hacked together some drivers already.
So, here we go, a combination of tools we would never have dreamt of a few years ago - a Nintendo Wiimote used to control Half-Life 2 in Windows on a Mac:
It does look a bit awkward at the moment and I reckon it would get painful pretty quick but I’m sure they will tweak the settings as it develops. I have to say that I am getting tired of the keyboard and mouse. I like minimalism and the Wiimote goes some way towards that goal. Maybe it will replace the mouse one day.
