a step by step method for using the Wii controller to output MIDI control to Apple Logic Pro and "conduct" MIDI with the Wii stick!

This time I worked on integrating the Wiidi Wiimote MIDI interface with Ableton Live. I mapped all the Wiimote and Nunchuck buttons, including the joypad, which can be used as a fully functional X-Y controller.
I'm currently working on streamlining the application interface so you can customize the button mappings on the fly. In this video I demonstrate the ability to control knobs by tilting the remote or nunchuck. Drums can also be triggered by snapping the wiimote or nunchuck like a drum stick-- and it can determine sensitivity!
The best part is, Wiidi will be available for download soon! Follow along at wiidi.com.

Basically you can play music without really touching anything. Its a pen with a LED that is activated when the button at the back is pressed.
You can also set any type of key layout, scales, full chords regions, can control any fader/knob in reason or any music software that allows external midi control. Also is cool to apply it on Resolume with video efects. My English is hilarious.
