Wii Balance board

[Matt Cutts], head developer for google’s anti spam team, describes how to attach a Wii balance board to a linux computer. He even shows how to make a GUI to show the input. The entire project is done in about 200 lines of python.The process assumes that you can already make a bluetooth connection to a WiiMote, but if you can’t, he’s got instructions for that too.

    Hmm, this just gave me an idea. I wonder how easy it would be to make the balance board bigger.

    Trying that trick with my Amiga would undoubtedly lead to a guru meditation error.

    Dudes, neverball is hard *enough* with a mouse.

    @exlud: it probably would, you’d be a heck of a lot calmer though
