Many folks have always seen the iPhone and Nintendo Wii as products that are somewhat related, specially thanks to their worldwide success and the fact that… they support wireless connections. Now, the two are linked via a brand new piece of software, as you can see in the video below:
The iPhone and Wiimote are connected thanks to Bluetooth and this application relies on the portable Bluetooth stack from the BTStack project, plus customized OpenGL-ES code. The latter allows Nintendo’s joystick to control its virtual on-screen representation displayed on the iPhone.
I fail to see what the use of this technology can be, but maybe there’s some hidden gaming purpose to all of this…
