Wiifit Balance Board


I'm trying to connect a wiifit balance board to Vizard, but can't seem to get it to work. I'm assuming the wiimote plugin does not support the balance board as it is not documented. I can connect to the wiifit using the wiimote plugin and change the LED states on the board, but I don't know how to gather data from it. Is there any simple hackery I could use to get the data somehow, or will I have to write a custom plugin?

I've tried all of the options in the wiimote driver to see if the sensor data was translated to wiimote position/button press data, but everything returned zero or was empty.

We haven't tested the plugin with the balance board before, so it most likely is not supported. We don't have any immediate plans to add balance board support, so if you need this functionality soon then you will need to write your own plugin or maybe find a 3rd party Python library for connecting to the balance board.
