Wii Controller

Nintendo created a controller that has the potential of making gaming as accessible to people of all ages and all abilities, called the Wii Remote controller. The device takes advantage of the familiarity of a remote control and makes use of motion-sensing technology to provide an input device for the ages.

The wireless Wii Remote controller which has the size of a traditional remote control is a multifunctional device that is limited only by the game designer's imagination. It uses Bluetooth technology to send user's actions to the Wii console from as far as 30 feet away. As a pointing device, the controller can send a signal from as far as 15 feet away. Up to four Wii Remote Controllers can be connected at once, allowing for multiplayer capabilities.

In addition to its pointing and motion-sensing abilities, the Wii Remote controller also includes a speaker, rumble feature and expansion port for additional input devices, such as the Nunchuk controller.

For example, in a tennis game, the wireless Wii Remote controller can serve as your racket you swing with your arm. In a driving game, it serves as your steering wheel. For first-person shooters, the remote acts as your weapon that you point at an enemy.
