This article needs major expanding and there are plenty of errors!

GlovePie running code

Glove Programmable Input Emulator (GlovePie) was originally created by and is currently maintained by Carl Kenner. It is a current "driver" for the Wii remote. Not many software packages can use a Wii Remote's input data so GlovePie works by taking input from one device (example Wii Remote) and translates it into fake inputs from another input device (example mouse). It uses a language much like basic. Example code:

Mouse.RightButton = Wiimote.A

That code tells the computer this: when ever the Wii Remote's "A" button is pressed down it will have the same effect as pressing the right mouse button. This doesn't work in reverse. Here is a truth table for that code:

If... The computer thinks that "A" on the Wii Remote is pressed: The Wii Remote has "A" pressed: The computer thinks that the right mouse button is pressed: The right mouse button is pressed:
The Wii Remote has "A" pressed: True True True False
The right mouse button is pressed: False True False True

As far as I can tell Carl Kenner holds all licensing.
