Here is a video I saw that shows someone using the Wii U GamePad as input to a PC and I though it was pretty cool.

Tutorial (PC-only):

Installation:
1) Extract the contents of the archive to a directory on your local web server. I prefer to use XAMPP, but there are certainly plenty of options out there.

2) Open index.html in your favorite editor and change the IP address pointing to now.js to your PC's local IP address (ie. http://192.168.2.1:8080/nowjs/now.js). The port (although you can change it if you please, within server.js) will remain 8080, and the path to now.js will remain constant as well.

3) Run "regplugin.bat" OR alternatively, open a command prompt in the extracted content's directory and run "regsvr32 npWiiU.dll /s".

Usage:
1) Run "simpleserver.bat" OR alternatively, open a command prompt in the extracted content's directory and run "node server.js".

2) Navigate to the extracted content's directory on your local web server (ie. http://192.168.2.1/wiiu/) in the Wii U's Internet Browser.

3) Navigate to the pc.html page in your browser on the PC (ie. http://localhost/wiiu/pc.html).

4) Set your hotkeys from the PC side and enjoy!

Bump.

I added more videos and the download link to all the files necessary to do this.

Also can I get this moved to "Wii U Programs and Tools"
