Is there any way to simulate a Wiimote with an Android phone or something?

    Most likely at the arcade
    I lost my Wiimote, and I don't have a second one. Is there any way I could simulate one, at least to the point where I can launch apps from the menu? I'd go buy one, but it's already late and I won't be able to for the next little while now :/

    The Wii remote is an infrared camera and some accelerometers and buttons so I'm guessing no. :/

    OP is implying that the phone can fake all that data. Just IR emulation and the buttons should be enough.

    Theoretically, yeah but I don't think the wii would recognize it and as far as I know there aren't any programs for this purpose.

    That's a pretty complicated project even if it's possible, and I don't think anyone has even looked at emulating wiimotes (which is a damn shame as a proper remote with IR tracking would make an awesome HTPC remote)

    I have like six Wiimotes (collecting special editions) so it'd be a while before I run into this problem...
