This site is designed for the Wii … seriously.

Hot on the tail of Google Labs with their updated RSS reader now supporting the Wiimote, in almost eyebrow-raising excitement – I wanted to congratulate this Michael Bolin guy on his Wiimote javascript libraries.

So I did a little more digging, and I found a nice little Wii WordPress plugin that detects if you’re using a Wii and displays the site accordingly. Nice big text, easy to navigate links, perfect for that in the armchair browsing we all wish we could do.

That’s all very well, but it doesn’t make much of Michael Bolin’s library. So I did what any self-respecting web developer would do, and hacked the two together in the dirtiest quickest way possible. So if you’ve got a Wii – try it out… Go to in Opera and see the layout especially designed for you. Click on an article to read it, and while you’re there, hit the Left and Right buttons of the d-pad, and you’ll skip between the articles as well.

Now then, about that Wii keyboard …
