WiiSaber: A Wii, Mac, and Lightsaber Sandwich

7 Dec

You might recall an application I wrote earlier this year called MacSaber. If so, my new Cocoa application should be quite familiar.

Hiroaky just released a handy bit of code that adapts the Nintendo Wii’s “WiiMote” wireless controllers for use on the Mac. I have taken his idea and merged it with the magic that made MacSaber to bring you a new breed of audio Lightsaber simulator.

This application looks and works just like MacSaber, but the input device is the WiiMote instead of your Apple laptop. I plan on adding more features including more visual response and multi-controller capabilities soon, so check back again later.

    Any chance of rolling the latest version of DarwiinRemote (v 0.7)
    into a quick update of WiiSaber?

    It might fix some of the WiiSaber crash problems reported by people :-)
