ButtonCast is an Input Device Tunneler (Caster) which allows your Wii to act as a Controller-Hub.
It connects via TCP to any application of choice (be it on PC, Android, iOS or even another Wii if you wanted) and tunnels the Button Presses of ALL devices to said application for handling.
This allows endusers to use all of their Gamecube Controllers, Wiimotes, Nunchuks, Guitars, Dance-Mats, etc. on any ButtonCast enabled application out there without the need of buying physical adapters.
In theory, it would even be possible to have 8-player-multiplayer-matches using this application as it transfers a full set of 4x Wiimote and 4x Gamecube Controller input data.
Sample Code on how to add ButtonCast input support to your own applications is included in the download package, along with the Hub application for Wii.
