WiiMote + iPhone Update

Using a Wii remote as the controller for iPhone games? Brilliant! We’ve been waiting to see some creative usage of this pairing since we covered it back in August. [ZodTTD] is the person who ported MAME over to the iPhone. Now he’s added support for the Wii remote in Mame4iPhone via the BTstack project. BTstack seeks to add Bluetooth stack functionality to devices that don’t have it or where it is limited (the iPhone).

We’ve embedded video after the break of the WiiMote used to play a MAME game. [ZodTTD] is also the author of nes4iPhone, we hope that’s the next project he will add BTstack support to!

    @bcoblentz It’s actually Super Hang-on by Sega

    If this could be implemented with Console Emulation already available on the iphone, it would be a dream. Just think, your fon + wiimote = video games W/ a decent controller? Wow! W/ this and the BT keyboard linkup, its almost becoming a replacement for a laptop in certain situations!

    Um, nes4iPhone already has support for the Wiimote. Granted there’s insane button lag (or at least there was when I tried it), but the support was there.

    It looks like there’s still some lag in this video :(

    And if you like that you’ll love the new pocket tvs just on the horizon, they come with a remote control! :D

    Why doesn’t he rotate the wii-mote control. Would be much more comfortable.

    Duck hunt support with the wii-mote would be even better, just add 2 ir leds and a few lines of code.

    this is kind of a good advancement it means they are closer to developing a bluetooth keyboard for the iphone
