Apple TV Wiimote Hack Demo


apple tv wiimote hack demo

Got to love people’s ability to make gadgets do their own bidding. A second generation Apple TV owner has successfully managed to get his Wiimote to work on a jailbroken Apple TV. Essentially, at this point, the hack allows one to launch a Bluetooth software stack known as BTstack which can then recognize and communicate with the Wiimote through a virtual representation on screen of its various orientations. BTstack also works with Apple’s wireless keyboard for easy text input. A demo of both devices paired with an Apple TV are attached below. No doubt the Wiimote hackers want the remote to work on the Apple TV as well as it does natively on the Nintendo Wii for navigating the UI and eventually playing games. [via / via]
