In this tutorial I show you how to use a Nintendo Wiimote with your Raspberry Pi. By the end of this video you will be able to receive button presses from the Wiimote, as well as raw accelerometer data. This is very easy to do over the simple Bluetooth protocol and you will then have a wireless controller that is perfect for tasks such as robot control. All you need is a dongle and a Wiimote!

Information:

Here is the Bluetooth dongle I use in the tutorial: http://www.amazon.co.uk/TINY-WIRELESS...

Here is an official list of all the Raspberry Pi compatible Bluetooth dongles: http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeriphe...

If you don't have an official Wiimote you can pick one up from here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Nintendo-RVLA...

NOTE: I have not tested this tutorial extensively with third party Wiimotes and so I cannot guarantee they will work at all. I would recommend being safe and going for an official model such as the above.

Finally here is a link to the GitHub repository I use in the video: https://github.com/the-raspberry-pi-g...
