Using the Nintendo Wiimote with Linux
Nintendo's Wii game console includes the popular Wiimote control. Have you ever wondered whether the Wiimote works with Linux?
Nintendo Wii users have become quite adept at slashing the wireless Wii remote (Wiimote) control through the air to score points with tennis players, golfers, space aliens, and other forms of virtual gladiators. If you like the Wiimote but you'd rather be on Linux, the transition is not as difficult as you might expect. A number of open source projects provide support for Wii with Linux. For instance, the CWiid toolset  includes:
- libcwiid – an API for supporting the Wiid environment
- wmgui – a GUI control panel app
- wminput – an event/mouse/joystick driver
- wmdemo – a demo and testing application
