Will this work with a mac?

On step 56 what control program are we supposed to open. I successfully downloaded both MonoBrick (which is just two .dll files) and Glove Pie but I cannot run it because d3dx9_33.dll is missing from my computer for some reason. So my main question is what do you mean by open the control program because I am unable to find it.

I did everything. The wii remote is connected with glovepie but nothing happens with the nxt. The nxt is connected with the blue tooth please help?

That's pretty cool! It looks like you've essentially used your computer as a "translator" that takes the sensor data from the wii remote and then send out motor commands to the NXT. Nifty!

A great writeup about what the "translator" program is sending down to the NXT over bluetooth can be read here:

This is a great step by step tutorial of how to send down commands to the NXT. Additionally there are a bunch of free apps you can download for your computer and other mobile devices. If you can any questions - post your questions up there!

Hope this helps,
