If you haven’t already, check out the aka.wiiremote object (google it)
Also check out Darwiin remot (again, google). Darwiin allows you to use the
wii remote as a mouse, using either gyroscope or IR data.
In order to use IR pointer data, you need a couple of IR sources for the
wiiremote to triangulate with. Some people use two candles, but for those
who don’t want open flames, others use IR LEDS. I made my own sensor bar
using an old USB cable and some IR LEDS, and it works fine.
