Wiipresent

Wiipresent is a program that lets you use a Nintendo Wiimote as a cheap and reliable wireless presentation device. The various buttons are mapped to help you navigate through your presentation. The device rumbles to indicate how much time has passed and the LEDs gives you visual feedback on how much time you have left. You can also use your Wiimote's IR and tilting capabilities to move your mouse pointer on screen. Wiipresent was designed to be an off-the-shelf tool that can be used by anyone as long as you have a bluetooth receiver.
