What do you get when you combine a Wii, a Linux nerd, and some free time? A method for using the Wiimote as a music controller. The standard next, previous, and volume controls are all mapped to the Wiimote, but the neat trick is being able to shake the Wiimote to skip to the next track. If you shake it violently, it'll skip multiple tracks.

What's kinda sad is that Walter only got a Wiimote for Christmas—not an actual Wii. We suppose this project is his way of making lemonade.
