Ever wondered what cool things you can do with a Wiimote? If so, this is definitely where you should start- using it as a mouse!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Step 1: Materials
1. A Wiimote (of course)
2. WiiMotionPlus (actually is built into some new Wiimotes!)
3. Bluetooth Connectivity
4. Glove_Pie and my custom Wiimote program
5. A Wii Nunchuk
NOTE: If the .PIE files are downloaded as .TMPs, you'll need to donwload them in (I hate to say this..) Internet Explorer and copy the text into Glove_PIE.
Step 2: Step 2: Program
First, download the files from step 1 (no viruses, I promise!) and open the Win-Zip file. Save all the contents to your computer. Run the Glove_Pie application. Save the WiiMotionPlus Mouse file to your computer and open it with Glove_Pie.
Step 3: Step 3: Wiimote
Connect the WiiMotionPlus and Nunchuk to the Wiimote. Next, open your Bluetooth software. On Windows Vista and newer, just type "Bluetooth" in the start menu search bar. Click on "Bluetooth Devices". Press 1 and 2 together on your Wiimote and click "Add New Device". Keep pressing 1 and 2 until your computer lists the Wiimote as a device to install. Select the device. At the next screen, click "Don't Use Passkey" and hit "Next". Your computer will install the Wiimote as a usable device.
Step 4: Step 4: Connect!
Once the Wiimote is connected, open the Glove_Pie program and place the Wiimote flat on your work surface. Hit 1 and 2 on the Wiimote and click "Run" on Glove_Pie. The 1 and 4 lights on the Wiimote should light up. Once the 2 and 3 lights are lit, it is ready to use.
Step 5: Step 5: Controls
Ignore what Glove_Pie says about the controls.
Hold B and move the remote to move the cursor.
A is left click.
+ is right click.
- is Esc.
Home opens the Start Menu
1 is Space
2 is Enter
The Nunchuk control stick acts as the arrow keys.
Step 6: Step 6: Updates....
As I create new versions of this, I will post downloads here...
1. Wiimote N64 acts as a controller for the Project64 emulator. Controls are listed in the program.
2. StarWarsPodRacerTurntable lets you play Star Wars Episode I- Racer with a DJ Hero turntable. The green, red, and plus buttons are used, along with the control stick and record rotation.
3. StarWarsPodRacerNunchuk lets you play Star Wars Episode I- Racer using two Nunchuk control sticks, the Z and C buttons, and the Wiimote D-pad. (http://www.coolrom.com/roms/n64/1532/Star_Wars_Episode_I_-_Racer.php)
4. This lets you use a Wii Classic Controller with Project64. Configure Project64 so that A=A, B=B, Z=Z, Start=Enter, Select=Shift, Control Stick=Arrow Keys, and D-Pad=E,S,D,F.
