So, what my son does from time to time…

He learned that from me. :D

Oh yeah…

Game controller is a Wiimote from our Wii. He learned to hook it up to his Mac via Bluetooth a long time ago.

So nice! I'll try to connect my PowerMac and my wimote too, it would be fun to play Nintendo classics with a Nintendo controller :)
All you need is a DVI to HDMI adapter and an audio cable.

As for connecting the controller, it's an app he got online I believe.

Napoli, city of sun and pizza!
@eyoungren , could you please ask your son which app does he use to connect the wiimote to the powerbook? I use Wiiji but it is not so comfortable, I have to try at least 9-10 times each time in order to have a connection between the two devices. I use a small bluetooth adapter connected via usb to my MDD
