My wife got me a fancy android tablet for Xmas... A Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1... I am loving it. This is in addition to my iPad and my 7 inch Archos Froyo tablet.
I recently found a quite amazing thing I can do with it.
I have always loved Nintendo games. Nes, Snes, N64, Wii. I've had PC emulators and played many of the best games from these systems on the PC..
I have been running a N64 emulator on my Galaxy Tab...N64OID... It works quite nicely but the on screen touch controls are much harder than a real keyboard or a gamepad controller. So today I discovered some guy wrote a bluetooth program that captures the input for the WiiMote... The wireless controller for the Wii.
Wii has an additional controller called the Classic Controller that plugs into the WiiMote controller... I can capture the input from this controller and send it to the SNES and N64 emulators on the Galaxy Tab..
What this means ......In simple english....
I can use my Wii wireless controllers to control Mario while playing Super Mario 64 running on the N64 emulator on my Galaxy tablet...Full audio, video, and control.
This is pretty wild. It plays as good as Nintendo 64 hooked up to a TV... but I can play it anywhere with no electric power plugs and true nintendo controllers..
LIFE IS GOOD... ( but very weird)
Who would have ever "thunk" it ?
