My name is Pierre from Belgium.

I use Wiimotes everywhere: I carry two with me in my laptop bag, along with a presenter, to give presentations where I do standard powerpoint stuff as well as on-screen doodling - sure way to dazzle customers! - and to play games on the road of course. I also use one at the office with my CAD software, to spin 3D parts on the screen without touching using the mouse.

Finally, I'm planning on using some more at home as an alarm system, glueing them on doors and windows to detect entry with the accelerometers, and using the IR cameras as barriers. That is, as soon as I find some time to hack them to auto-reconnect and code an alarm daemon to run on my home server that is :)

Wiimotes are the cheapest, most versatile remote sensors known to man. And you guys who coded all the fantastic apps to exploit them and made this site are great. Thank you!
