Hello! My name is Christopher ( I go by Chris) and I'm a senior computer science major.  I don't have much experience in Wiimote programming, but I've played with smoothboard.  I have to do a senior research project this semester and am interested in doing one involving a wiimote.  I was wondering if anyone could give me a nudge in the right direction.  I'm not looking for spoon fed answers or a project spelled out for me.  Just some general areas I could do research in and places I could find info on programming with a wiiremote.  Thanks!!!

Hi Chris,

You can get started by using Brian Peek's WiimoteLib which includes a sample app.

Also, you can refer to the following book.
http://books.google.com.sg/books?id=d1QC69atuocC&lpg=PP1&dq=brian%20peek%20coding4fun&pg=PP1#v=onepage&q&f=false

If you have any issues or require suggestions, please feel free to post in a relevant sub-forum here.

Regards,
Boon Jin

you might think about using the Wiimote, Wii MotionPlus, or the Wii Balance Board as controllers and/or sensors for applications that currently cost a lot of money due to special hardware requirements.
As far as info on programming goes, you're welcome to check out the source of my Wiimote Logger and Wiimote Whiteboard apps → http://www.uweschmidt.org/projects)
