"I basically used GlovePie to patch the Wiimote through a Bluetooth dongle into my Ableton Live," he replied. Again the gizmo glaze descended. Still, that must be one heck of a dongle!

Embed your Wiimotes into lightsabers and duel other WiiJs!

"Maybe," DJ_! said. "I'm happy just to be able to take a bathroom break." Now that's putting the wee in Wii, no pun Nintendoed. *
