Wii Balance Board Supported by Linux Kernel 3.7

Linux Kernel 3.7 will provide support for Wii Balance Board, an accessory of the Nintendo's Wii Fit.

A few HID updates were merged into the 3.7 Linux kernel tree by Jiri Kosina, including a very interesting one from David Herrmann.

Apparently, there was a specific need for this feature, so now the Wiimote driver supports the Balance Board.

David Herrmann wrote that “the Nintendo Balance-Board is a controller which behaves exactly like the Wii Remote but reports all its data through a special extension device. Hence, we can simply add the Balance-Board as extension device and we get full support for it.”

Linux kernel 3.6 was released just a few days ago by Linux Torvalds, after seven RC versions. It's going to be interesting to watch how many development versions weĆ¢€™ll have this time around.

You can download the latest stable Linux kernel, 3.6, right now from Softpedia.
