    Abstract

    This final year BSc Computer Science project is about the implementation of a software package to allow the Wii Remote controller to be used as a remote interface device for a Windows based PC. The connectivity issues will be handled by external Bluetooth stacks at the operating system level. The challenge of this project will be the translation of the Wii remote signals in such a way so that a user can achieve or even surpass the functionality of a pointing device, such as the mouse using a Wii remote controller. The capabilities of the Wii Remote controller are unique in some way and that is the reason of the huge success behind the Wii console, a console that is not technologically superior against its competitors. Bluetooth, infrared camera, multiaxis gyroscopes, buttons, a buzzing mechanism and a speaker are all included in the controller. This report will analyze the capabilities and features of the controller and then the design and implementation of the software developed will be presented.
