Perl module for wiimote!
I wrote a perl module to interface with the wiimote. You can download the source here. It is fairly quick and dirty, but most of the wiimotes functions can be accessed by perl.
The axis, tilt, D-pad, keys, rumble, nunchuck joystick, nunchuck buttons and nunchuck tilt all work. The module accesses the C library, libcwiimote, that Joel Andersson wrote. Most of the real credit should go to him.
I have tested it on a laptop running Suse 10.0 with a USB bluetooth dongle. I got the dongle off ebay for $5.
lsusb lists my bluetooth dongle as:
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0a12:0001 Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth Dongle (HCI mode)
