The remote control of the Nintendo Wii (Wiimote) uses Bluetooth technology to connect to the console. But with a Bluetooth USB Dongle for about $18,-
you can just as easily make it interact with your PC. There are several free software solutions to put the Wiimote to action on your computer (which we will come back to in later posts) and BlueTunes
is one of them. It lets you control Windows Media Player, iTunes, Winamp or Napster with the buttons and even the motion sense of the Wiimote. Downloads, install and user manuals are available at the BlueTunes website
. The image below shows the default control settings.
