by Andrea F.
http://github.com/remogatto/ffi-wiiuse/tree/master

== DESCRIPTION

ffi-wiiuse is a ruby wrapper around wiiuse, a C library that handles
the connection with Nintendo Wiimote devices. The binding is based on
ruby FFI so it doesn’t need any compilation step. Please, note that
ffi-wiiuse API is a mere translation of wiiuse C API: no idiomatic
ruby inside!

Very cool. I’ve been using wiiusej with JRuby and liking it.

Big upside to wiiusej for me is monster ease of making Wii GUI apps
using JRuby + Monkeybars. :slight_smile:

But I will definitely look at this.

Thanks,
