    Getting IR coordinates from Wii remote signal

    Hello ,

    I'm working on a project where I'm using a wii remote to track an infra red LED. The wii remote is connected to the computer via bluetooth. I've no experience with dealing with the wii before.

    My questions are:

    1- How can I read the data send by the wii remote to the computer ?
    2- How can I extract from this data the position (coordinates) of the infra red LED seen by the wii remote ?


    Thanks a lot in advance

    Well first you need to flame throwers..... You said you wanted to play your wii a mile away right? lol, you were spot on though I instantly though of that thread when i read it, I dont see how a 35 dollar wii remote should be used as anythin else in case it breaks...

    You also might want to look up GlovePIE.
    Basically you can write scripts in it (including getting coords of the IR sensor) which can do anything from press a keyboard button if you press a wiimote button (basically remap wiimote to the keyboard so programs recognize it) to runnin a whole complex key sequence that blinks your wiimote lights while pressing random buttons and making the wiimote beep :P
