If you're already using libcwiid and wmgui, then you can read the event
data pretty easily as well as control the leds and the rumble motor
using the libcwiid api. I have it working in a custom device daemon
that forwards hids and wiimotes over osc in linux ... I have been
meaning to sit down and set it all up for automake and release it if
there is interest.
If you program in C/C++ checkout the libwcwiid demo.
Now I just need that neural net stuff for gesture recognition within pd.
