    Question use Wiimote as audio device?

    So I got a wiimote and I'm currently using cwiid to control my mouse. It's awesome. But I want more, there is also a speaker and rumble on the wiimote and I was wondering if there was anything that could do more then cwiid. For example, use the speaker as another speaker for my computer(I've heard the speaker is bad but It would be kind of cool). I was also wondering if I could use the lights in cwiid or something else.

    I haven't come across anything personally to get communication through the speaker, but for extending the capabilities of the wiimote, check out this PureData external: http://mikewoz.com/index.php?page=pd-stuff
    I did a project with it where synthesis was controlled by the pitch of the controller, filters were controlled by the roll, and amplitude was controlled by the yaw; I also had various buttons mapped to trigger (via MIDI sent to QSynth) playback of sounfonts.
    What makes a great open source contributor is not primarily the brilliance of their ideas or importance of their bug, but rather their willingness to see it through to success.
