Wiimote Friends

Whilst researching youtube vidoes I found this great project:
Use a Wiimote & Nunchuck or 2x Wiimotes as Juggling Sticks

WiiSticks is my first attempt at combining input from a Wii remote and physics simulation. In the game the user holds 2 wii remotes (or 1 remote with a nunchuck attachment), and flips and spins a rod back and forth between 2 sticks that they control directly with the remote. The input is very intuitive, even providing basic force feedback (the controller rumbles on contact with other objects).

Requires a bluetooth adaptor for your windows PC, and at least 1 Wii remote + Nunchuck, or 2 Wii remotes.
FEATURES

    * intuitive controls feel "like the real thing"
    * fully playable with only the wii remote (no mouse or keyboard required)
    * expandable design means more sticks can be added easily


REQUIREMENTS

    * Windows XP
    * 3D accelerated video card with current drivers for DirectX or OpenGL
    * Bluetooth adaptor / bluetooth capability
    * 2 Wii remotes (alternatively 1 wii remote + nunchuck attachment)
