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

Japanese modders have made their own Kurukuru kart, a recreational vehicle you can control directly with a hacked Wiimote.

Looks like a lot of fun if you have a lot of time to kill. 🙂

WiiFlash looks like a particularly interesting tool for Flash developers. You can run the WiiFlash server compone

DIY Homebrewed Wii App – Wii Physics!

video://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YANSPDO3oU

This homebrewed Wii App called Wii Physics is similar to Microsoft’s Physics Illustrator and will let you test out your ideas before applying them in real life.

Wii Physics is a clever little homebrew app. You use the Wiimote to rotate, size and place objects on a stage. Pulleys, ropes, gears and joints can be used to connect objects together, and when you press the play button, a 2D physics system is turned on, causing the objects to fall and interact with each other.

Wii DIY HACK – Using your Wiimote to measure your car’s acceleration!

Although this is an awesome Wii hack using GlovePie and the Wiimote, you could probably do this a lot easier using a simple 3-axis accelerometer and a microcontroller.

Why not use the wiimote’s built in 3-axis accelerometers t
