Control your computer music and video collection using the Nintendo Wii remote

--- now works with Hulu Desktop and Windows Media Center ---




Do you listen to music on your computer?
Do you have a tv connected to your computer?
Haven't you always wanted a remote control for your computer?
If so, BlueTunes is your answer.

And best of all, this program is completely free.




BlueTunes will transform your Wiimote into a remote control for your computer (Windows only). Using bluetooth technology, you can now control your music and video libraries on your computer from 50 feet away - great for playing music. Walls and floors pose no problem at all.

Using the Wii senor bar, you can also control the mouse by pointing at the screen. Perfect for the person that has their computer connected to the TV. A Wii is still not necessary because it is possible to purchase a sensor bar separately for under $20 or you can build your own. Go here for more details.

You will need a Wiimote (a Nintendo Wii is not needed) and a bluetooth adapter (if your computer isn't already bluetooth enabled).
