Wiimote acceleration values plotted on a PC

Cyrus Farivar

While a good number of people who've gotten their hands on a Wii have caused all kinds of damage ranging from a busted window to broken TVs and beer glasses, others are taking a much more careful and measured approach to understanding the Wiimote's true nature. A fellow named Marcan42 on YouTube has put together a video which shows the Wiimote's acceleration values dumped to a computer, the first step necessary in hacking the device. It's anyone's guess how long it'll take to actually transform this raw data over Bluetooth into actual usable gameplay input and mechanics, but those hungry now for at least a video of some hot acceleration charts n' graphs need to no further than past the break.
