    Do you think it is possible?

    Is it possible with the hardware that the iPad comes with?

    Just me thinking since the iPad will have bluetooth which opens the door for wiimote combatibility (like we saw with nes4iphone)

    iPad nearly runs the same processor as the iPhone and iPods. So there is no way.

    They just need to some how magically port Dolphin. You can play Wii in 720p on your computer already!

    You use a Wii controller. It's bluetooth.

    yeah but, HOW does the computer precess the movements, how does the computer know what movements are u doing? Bleuetooth alone cannot read motion movement (am i wrong?)

    For example: the PS3 "playtation move" utilizes the "eye camera" to read the movements you are doing, with the bluetooth motion controllers

    The 'motion controller' in the Wiimote is just an accelerometer, which is very easily read. All the motion processing is done in the emulator, the BT stack just feeds it the numbers.

    You can also use a wireless sensor bar. The Accelerometer only tracks movement of the controller, not it's location. For that you need the sensor bar or else playing games like Wii sports would be impossible.

    The sensor bar tracking is sent through the controller to the wii or computer. All the wii bar is is an IR light and the controller just uses it as a reference point to track its position.

    Fun fact: Lit candles emit the same IR frequency as the wii sensor bar, so you can replace the sensor bar with just two candles a foot apart and it will work.
