    can't afford a Second Gamepad or battery not lasting

    Emulate your gamepad on your PC

    by Pierre Bourdon and a team (Pierre being the only one of the group from the Dolphin team)

    THIS IS NOT A WiiU EMULATOR, just the game pad which has its own firmware

    yeah I posted it in a existing thread just referencing it

    but as it didn't have its own I made it one so people could be made aware

    Thought I saw this while searching for gamepad mods/tricks. Someone needs to find away to use the gamepad has a controller and external monitor (preferably both at the same time) for android devices.

    This needs to be in the form of a Android App.​

    Pretty impressive. Of course there's no touchscreen functionality (at least...not on a regular screen), but as a tech demo it's certainly interesting.

    ...

    I guess wanting the opposite (streaming your pc monitor to your wiiu gamepad) is too much to ask? :)

    This has some very interesting uses.
    - Importing drawings straight to Miiverse
    - Easy Wii U game streaming (for the games that support off-TV gameplay)
    - Playing games that require an additional GamePad without having to buy one

    Hope this gets developed further.

    I love that NintendoLand theme. I wish there was a longer version of it.

    Sorry to bump this but is there any word on progress on this? Was there any sort of release that I missed? (or even another thread/site with updates?)

    I can't seem to find anything more than that first teaser video anywhere.

    I would like to know as well. My brother could use this if he ever decides to buy a WiiU. He is disabled and uses a special device to control his computer--running an emulated gamepad would actually allow him to play the games, as he cannot physically grasp anything other than his device.

    was going to ask this too.

    If you wanted to setup a Wii U without the Gamepad - can you use this without the need to borrow one?
