    Wiimote IR figured out. (mouse pointer!)



    finally we can use the Wiimote as a pointer on the computer. Only in linux at the moment but windows will be out in a few days no doubt.

    Now there's going to be an even BIGGER demand for Wii Remotes with all the PC people trying to get them too.

    So does this work using the IR sensors, or only the interal gyro sensors meaning you need to rock the remote to move the pointer?
