In this Independent Study, a program for Linux that converts particular movements of the Wiimote into typed letters, GraffiWii, is created. Additionally an alphabet is designed specifically for use in this study. Unlike similar research, GraffiWii does not use the Sensor Bar which therefore gives the user more flexibility in using the Wiimote as a character entry device. The challenge is to use only the force data and still obtain a reliable text entry device. The analysis presented in this manuscript shows that the force data sent by the Wiimote allows for accurate detection of simple movements and rotations.
