About

Missing a spirit level at home, I decided to use the Wiimote as a replacement. Over time, this tool evolved to something more like a protractor.

Please put any comments or suggestions on the Talk Page, I'd appreciate the feedback.

Note: If you use C++ and want to use GRRlib for drawing, you might want to have a look at the 'Draw' class (Draw.cpp & Draw.h). This thing kept me sane :-)

Installation

Download & extract the archive, and place it in your apps folder on your SD card so the Homebrew Channel can find it.

Usage

Put the wiimote on a surface you want to use as a reference and press A. This will start a calibration for minimum and maximum values of your Wiimote, afterwards you can put it on a target surface to see the difference in inclination.
