Making my very own Wiimote
September 16, 2013 02:14PM

I want to make my very own Wiimote with Motion Plus functionality as an experimental project. To do this I need some equipment:

- Bluetooth
- Microcontroller
- Accelerometer
- Gyroscope
- IR camera
- etc.

I want to use an AVR microcontroller since I have some exerience with AVRs. The AVR will communicate with the Bluetooth module using UART. I am thinking about using a RN42 class 2 Bluetooth module. I can read on the Wiimote site that: "The Wii Remote uses (and, at times, abuses) the standard Bluetooth HID protocol to communicate with the host..." and "The Wii Remote actually uses a fairly complex set of operations, transmitted through HID Output reports, and returns a number of different data packets through its Input reports, which contain the data from its peripherals."

Anyone know if I will be able to communicate with the Wii U using this RN42 module and a microcontroller?

Thanks for any response!
