App pretending to be wiimote?


Dec 12, 2009
I was wondering if it would be possible to allow a phone's bluetooth to act as a Wiimote, using bluetooth and the accelerometers and possible even the camera to do screen pointing. It may also be able to have custom key setups using combinations of buttons from wiimote + nunchuck (or classic controller) on one screen.

I've found information on the wiimote here, and there's another thread here: here, but nobody seemed sure whether it could be done.

Thanks =)
I don't believe this would be possible because of the limitations on the android OS. Maybe on a rooted phone, but then the practicability of the app would suffer alot.

Even if android could trick the wii into thinking it was a wiimote, using the phone with its camera pointed at the tv (for the IR bar) would be awkward at best and not very useful.
