An interesting project by Micah Denn.
Modeling in blender using a Wiimote has a surprisingly natural workflow.
Its Linux Mint12 using Gnome 3, I'm using libwiimote library's and a Bluetooth dongle to communicate with the wiimote.
There's a lot of tutorials but this is one of the best:
I also edited /etc/cwiid/wminput/buttons so that I could use the down button on the wiimote as the mouse middle click.
What do you think? Would this make it easier to work with Blender, or is it a sure-fire way to get RSI in your arm?
