Revolutionary Does the Balance Board

Cannot fetch Flickr photo (id: 2574230456). The photo either does not exist, or is private
WiiHD's favorite Wii fanboy, Mike Sylvester (not pictured), is at it again with his column Revolutionary. You might think a game like Wii Fit doesn't belong on a Core games blog, and you'd be right. But the peripheral that ships with it is of great interest to WiiHD. Even leaving aside the obvious sports games, there's a lot of potential in that Balance Board.

Last week, he broke out the Balance Board, one bluetooth dongle, a bluetooth stack (like widcomm or Bluesoleil), and GlovePIE, and gave us a taste of what we've been waiting for. It works (mostly), and Mike tells us how to get started on scripting. Hit up the column and get started. If you get something nice working, post the script in our forums, we love that kind of stuff. And tune in this week for Mike's own ideas for scripts and functions.
