Applications of Rumble and Speaker on Linking Cap

First, read about the Linking Cap.


Now normally, I'd say the only components of a WiiMot+ that would be needed for the Linking Cap are the 3IRLED triangle, bluetooth, and what's necessary to get a one-to-one motion tracker. That means no input buttons (aside from the power button), no IR camera, no rumble, and no speaker.

However, if we aren't going for just the bare minimum, some extra functionality could be added by leaving in rumble and the speaker.

Limiting Public Chat

One way to nerf the bad sort of newbies could be to simply limit how many public chats a user can send in a real-time day. (I recommend a minimum of 10) Private chat between friends would always be unlimited. Private chat in multi-user chatrooms (which are created between friends and daisy-chain out invitations a la "degrees of Kevin Bacon") would also be unlimited.

The number of public chats allowed could be reduced if you also reduced the "reload" time.
