WiiMote (Wii game controller) and Microsoft Robotics Studio


I’ve written before about the Wii controller with links to software that allows a programmer to use a WiiMote with a Windows computer over at Coding 4 Fun. (Note that the code has been updated since that original post.)


The latest cool thing I have seen that involves the WiiMote is Zeddy Iskandar showing off his sample code that uses Microsoft Robotics Studio and a WiiMote to control a robot remotely. The demo uses a Lego NXT based robot but I’m sure the code sample could be used to run other kinds of robots as well.


Over at Channel 8 (this post) there is a video demo and step by step instructions including code examples that Zeddy used. Check it out!

    Alfred, your timing could not be better. I just picked up a Wii remote control last night. Between letting my 2nd year students build some new software using .net for the control and our Robotics meeting today for the Lego contests here in Texas it’s going to be a busy couple of months.

    Please keep up the great blogging.

    Bryan, I’m glad you found this useful. I would love to hear about anythings your students come up with using it. And good luck with the Robobtics contest!
