      I much prefer Alex Harker's Wiimote external, although it seems to broken in Mountain Lion: http://alexanderjharker.co.uk/Software.html
      On the off chance that you're reading, Alex, any chance of a fix?

      Alex gave me the source code, and it's now become an urgent issue for me, so I think I will likely be working on adding ML/Mavericks support to the ajh.wiimote object over the next while.
      Also, I will be looking at making a Max object for the Sony PS Move, or else an OSC bridge application similar to Synapse/KinectA.
      I'll post updates when I get the chance.

      I still think the best external controller is... :looks both ways: Lemur, for ipad.
      Mira is really getting close, though, but it's a ways away from being able to do the crazy shit you can do with lemur.
