WiiToMidi is an OS X application that converts signals from the Nintendo Wii controller (the "wiimote") to MIDI signals which you can use in sundry music programs. You can connect the Wii accelerometer traces to pretty much any MIDI controller. If you connect it to a filter you can make wah-wah noises. Connect it to a pitchbend and create a shakeable vibrato. You could even make a software maraca. Do you realize how incredible a software maraca would be?!
I believe that someone already had this going in Linux at some point, but I believe this is the first time it's been done on a Mac, and in such a simple and easy way.
So there it is. Merry (late) Christmas! Have fun!
And if you love me tell all your friends, and Digg me. Please.
