How to: Wii-mote Control Your Curtains

The Wii has become a hacker's dream machine, with a myriad of unintended uses being devised by the dedicated Wii community regularly, like this remote control for house curtains...

The curtain control system uses an electrically operated window treatment hardware and system from Goelst (the G-Rail 6200 model shown above), modified to accept Controller Area Network instead of the usual IR remote. The Controller Area Network os operated via a PC with a USB Bluetooth dongle that captures and recognizes the Wii-mote signal. Interested in making your own version?
