Re-enact great Jedi, Sith battles with... a Nintendo Wii Remote

Impressive... most impressive

Securing Web Applications Made Simple and Scalable

Remember MacSaber, the fun utility that used a MacBook or MacBook Pro's hard drive movement sensor to trigger Jedi lightsabre sounds? Well, now you can do the same thing with the much more sword hilt-like Nintendo Wii Remote.

The new app, WiiSaber, comes from Isnoop, the guy who developed MacSaber earlier this year. It's currently available as a pre-release, testing version here.

You'll still need a Mac, to play the sounds, but the two hardware gadgets work smoothly together thanks to code developed by Japanese coder Hiroaky to pair Mac to Remote and share data between them.

Isnoop says he's working on the ability to support multiple Remotes, allowing players to engage in battles. Locate each Remote, extrapolate a metre-long cylinder from the end and check for collisions. All we need then, will be a way to get green, blue, purple or red lights to spring forth from the Remote... Impressive, most impressive... ®
