Pd can handle all of the data that the wiiremote sends, that is not a  
problem, unless you are on a machine that is 300MHz or less, then it  
might start to be too much.

Probably in the transmission rate and polling rate of bluetooth.

I doubt it.

I'll bet there is code that does that already, but probably not in  
Pd.  For example, in one of Johnny Chung Lee's projects.  You could  
either grab some C code and make an external, or translate the code  
into Pd.
