black-wii

Black Nintedo Wii will be available first in Europe very soon for those of you lucky to be living in the EU states.

Arduino Hack – How to Read Wii Motion Plus with Arduino!

I just got my hands on the new Tiger Woods 2010 for the Wii, which comes with a Wii Motion Plus.  Well, I have it sitting on my dining table but I guess someone found out how to read the data off the Wii Motion Plus.  Great timing although I have no use for it.

Ok so I, after much research, have been able to read the gyro data of the new wii motion plus peripheral with the arduino microcontroller. With this code and the code previously developed for the wii nunchuck (he

iCrack – iPhone’s will FAIL by crackin’ on you!

In the last year or so, 20% of all damaged iPhones in the world have FAILED due to the cracking of its screens.  Even Nintendo has added a protective silicon cover for their Wiimotes since they have been crackin’ up HDTVs like it’s no big thang.  Well, Apple better do something and put some protective iPhone covers as default otherwise they may be cheating the consumers. (to buy new iPhones!)

Even my Blackberry has been dropped about 50 times in the last 2 years and no screen has broken.  Perhaps, iPhone design is great for touch but not so much for insurance against c

Nintendo Hack – How to Convert your PowerGlove into a Wiimote-like Thang!

Do you remember when the first Nintendo PowerGlove came out? It was like the tightest game controller ever.

Well, nowdays “nobody” uses a PowerGlove but here’s a guy who hacked it, added an accelerometer, and now functional just like a Wiimote, or maybe even better.

Over the past month, I’ve done just that. I stripped the guts out of an original Power Glove, replaced the ultrasonic sensors with an accelerometer, the proprietary microcontroller with an open-source Arduino, and the wired connection with Bluetooth. I wrote an input manager to get the

Nintendo Hack — How to clean NES game cartridges

The classic Nintendo will forever be my top pick as the best gaming platform ever made. But, if you’re like me, you’ve run into the flashing red light of doom! (The original Blue Screen Of Death.)

As it turns out, the red light is telling you your games are dirty and, thankfully, it’s easy to clean them. I bet you even have everything you need to clean them — Q-Tips and window cleaner — in your bathroom right now.

Wii Hack – How to Use a 4GB SD Card on the Wii and Increase File Transfer Speeds!

Here’s a fun Wii hack that shows you how to use a 4GB SD card on a Nintentdo Wii and increase file transfer speeds over Wii-branded 2GB SD cards.  Although the author fills up the 4GB with 2GB of garbage, your file transfer speed is increased greatly so it might be worth a go if you have extra SD cards lying around.

Okay! Now we all know that Nintendo’s official line is that cards larger than 2GB will not work on the Wii…and for the most part this is true. However…what about a 4GB SD (NOT SDHC) card that PRETENDS it’s

DIY Nintendo Toaster works Perfectly!

Fully Functional NES inside toaster

video://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ig9-wX0aaFU

Check out this cool DIY Nintendo Toaster that encloses the whole Nintendo inside itself.  What I like most about this project is the toaster pop-out function works for the NES cartridges while the toaster LED turns on if the game is on.

I had an awful lot of people suggesting that my previous project (the Super Genintari/Leviticus) looked like a toaster. I then discovered that I had an extra NES and toaster laying around and knew what had to be done.
