    Hi Guys im new to this forum so not sure if im posting in the right spot.

    I am looking to get a system development kit for the Wii to use as part of my research thesis concerning stroke rehabilitation. Nintendo seem to only release them to game developers. Does anyone know where i could get one?

    Contact Nintendo and explain your situation and see what they have to say.

    Also, the Wii remote uses bluetooth and can be hooked to a PC. Many people have written some interesting things that use them.

    Sorry I didnt realise that was the name for it. I thought you meant it was a seperate control specifically for PC's. How can you connect it the PC? So theoretically you could write a PC game and use the Wii remote?

    All you need is a bluetooth dongle and some drivers. Also, a wireless sensor bar
