Wii Controller + Raspberry Pi + Python = Awesome!!. Brian writes –

So this is going to be a many part series for a robot project i’m working on. This first one covers writing a program that runs on the Raspberry Pi. This program is going to connect through bluetooth to a Nintendo Wii controller and allow you to control the data via Python. Cool I know!

So what I did first was familiarize myself with connecting my Wii controller to my PC (virtual desktop running Ubuntu) and using Cwiid as a module I was able to write a small program to grab the data. Once I knew I could connect and communicate all I needed to do was port this over to my Raspberry Pi.
