I know this is old, but I just got back from Universal Studios with an interactive Harry Potter Wand and I am trying to get it to work at home with a Wiimote. I know @timothy_high got it working, but I cannot. Here is what I have tried --
1) Downloaded some software called Touchmote that pairs with a Wiimote for Windows 10.
2) Set up and paired it with my PC. It works perfectly when I used the Wiimote with the Sensor bar
3) When I turn the Wiimote and Sensor bar toward the wand and try to wave it around, it doesn't register anything. I've tried every angle and distance I can think of.
From what I been reading, the wand just reflects the IR light back to the Wiimote so I feel like this should work. Can anyone help me see what I'm missing here?
Edit: I also downloaded the WiiWandz project from Github and built it successfully on Windows 10 and got it to run, but I still have the same issue. Wiimote and sensor work great, but nothing happens with the wand
Edit 2: Nevermind! It works now with WindWandz on Windows 10. I just need to be about a foot or so away from the Wiimote. Woot.
