Father puts together a breathing detector for his new born infant using a Wiimote and some lasers
While I have yet to experience the joys of fatherhood, there is no doubt that raising a new born infant can be quite tricky, not to mention the constant worrying over the littlest of things can drive one to do crazy things, which is what this father did. A hacker and a blogger before becoming a father, Gjoci was already working on putting together a breath detector that would alert […]

Man flies using Wiimote?

The person in the video above is a Dutchman named Jarno […]

TRON Legacy Wiimote goes through FCC's door
The TRON Legacy movie can be said to be a blockbuster as part of a foregone conclusion, although it remains to be seen whether the 2D version would be as stunning as the way it is meant to be viewed – and by that, we mean via stereoscopic 3D.

FCC approves Wiimote RVL-036 controller with built-in MotionPlus technology?
The MotionPlus technology that was introduced a couple of years back could very well be part of an integrated Wiimote in the near future, especially with the FCC recently approving the Wiimote RVL-036 controller. The diagram itself shows that it is a Wiimote, but confidentiality request translates to a witholding of any live photos or user manual until the calendar hits November 7th this year. This is good news since […]

American Heart Association Backs The Nintendo Wii
While video games have long been blamed for causing kids to sit too long in front of the television when they should be playing outdoors, Nintendo’s Wii has gotten the stamp of approval from the American Heart Association, as it encourages sedentary Americans to take the first step towards fitness, thanks to its Wiimote, that makes all us try to become Jedi Knights in the living room.

Super Mario Bros sees action on the iPad
Hmmm, we wonder what Nintendo and Apple has to say about this – Super Mario Bros is running on the iPad using SNES4iphone, and at double the display size, it comes with a very different control scheme instead of touch – it uses movement, paying homage to Nintendo by hooking up a hacked Wiimote to the iPad via Bluetooth connectivity.

With the Wii Push Up Bar, you’ll be able to perform much deeper push ups, giving you a much better […]

Wii And PS3 Gun Controllers
[CES 2010] Want to get more serious about gaming on your Nintendo Wii or Sony PS3? These gun controllers from CTA Digital on show at CES will certainly give you a more realistic feel to your gaming sessions.
