    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.

    Playing Super Mario Brothers and other classics feels just awesome with this gamepad :)

    Yeah, that setup is pretty cool, Erik.

    @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

    I had better luck with DarwiinRemote, it connects every time on the first try! Thanks a lot to you and your son :)
