    With Nintendo Wii remote, Nunchuk and Wii Balance Board, it is easy to produce drum kit sounds from programming of their acceleration, joystick and weight data. These data can be transmitted from Wii controllers via Bluetooth to PC or Mac without Wii consoles. Wii Drum High integrates all three kinds of Wii controllers to stimulate a complete drum set of Hi-hat, Snare, Base drum, Crash cymbal, Ride cymbal, Mid tom and Low tom. Up to 4 sets of Wii remote and nunchuk can be used at the same time. (one of my colleague succeeded in connecting 5 wiimotes to a PC, but I've never tried)

    This software is written in C# and utilizes Windows Presentation Foundation (or WPF) within .NET Framework 3.5 for user interface and animation. The data from wii controllers is collected using Brian Peek's WiimoteLib API, and sound is programmed with DirectSound.

    Wow.. one of the few that discovered the Wimote lib and did something nice with it.

    And.. I demand a Wii version :+

    You should also try to make it use the GH:WT drumset.

    I dunno, I thought the guy who got wiimote working with Half-Life Source was pretty BAMF, among others.

    there are other 2 or 3 aplications like this, this is the first that uses the WiiBoard tho, but I'm really waiting for the Wii version of it, all this apps in PC gives a lot of latency (up to 500ms), and that's not good, for a drum set at least; it shouldn't be hard to do it in the Wii, but I guess no one is interested....!!
