Controlling Blender with a Wiimote

26

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?

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)
