Project Description

Background: The Wii Remote is the Nitendo Wii's main input device. Wii Balenace Borad (WBB) is a wireless device - both using standard bluetooth technology to communicate with the Wii. WBB implements the same protocol as the Wiimote for host communications, and exposes most of its functionality via an extension controller.

Purpose: The purpose of the software which should be written is to indicate the "intensity of movement" of the person who stands or sits on the WBB. This "intensity" - lets say from 0 (still) to 100 (very twitchy) - should be displayed and written into a file at a choosable time interval. The parameters of the Wii Remote should also be displayed and recorded. Displaying the data on screen should be able to be turned off.

Hence the desktop program should
1) pair Wii Remote and WBB via bluetooth with the computer (PC and/or MAC)
2) Calibrate the WBB
3) Display the retrieved values on screen (see example attached but plus WBB-data)
4) After pressing a "Start"-button the values should be written into a file (e.g. plain text) with timestamps (computer time and time from pressing "start"). Interval should be selectable between 10 milliseconds and 1 second.
