N64 in a Wii Case

Categories: Funny, Wii Console Hack.

It has been sold but you would be able to duplicate the results of this mod with a bit of effort. I wouldn’t recommend you do this to make a profit though since the mod sold on Ebay for only $157.50.

“This is a Nintendo 64 in a Wii case, very different, but it was done, and in all works! it is a Wii case that has been modified to fit a n64 inside, and function perfectly well! There is a power on switch that was a xbox 360 left trigger, that was modified to be a switch! there is no reset button, but that is not even needed anyways.”

Wii Spray – Electronic Spray Paint

Categories: Funny, PC Connect, Wiimote Hack.

Did you ever think that your Wiimote would be used to spray electronic graffiti? This cool Wiimote in a spray can do exactly that!

“The basic idea was to build a computer hardware interface which is similar to an existing analog tool. An new interface will force new experiences. Forget about keyboard and mouse: with WiiSpray we created a new human computing interface (HCI). The use of WiiSpray is similar of using a real spray can – but without the colour and the toxic smells. WiiSpray is based on Adobe Flash, a WiiFlashServer and the Nintendo Wii® device. With this techology and a computer supported technology it is possible to move wireless through the space. You don´t need to learn this device – just start spraying intuitively. And the best is, after finishing your grafitti you can upload it to our website and look at it at any time from everywhere.”

Wiimote Nintendo Gun Mod

Categories: Funny, Video, Wiimote Hack.

The Nintendo Gun provided a better point and shoot mechanism than the add on modules that are available for the Wiimote. This hack allows you to adapt one of the original Nintendo Guns to work with the Wiimote. Since the Wiimote uses an IR camera to look at the sensor bar that sensor needs to be removed and installed in the tip of the gun.

Wiimote Sport Cuff

Categories: Funny, Wiimote Hack.

Keep your wiimote out of the big screen TV with this Wii Cuff.

“After one month of having its customers injuring themselves in Wii-related accidents, last December Nintendo started replacing the Wii remote strap with one that was more durable and held up to the heavy use that gamers were laying down on it.

Still, for some players the new and improved Nintendo strap may not be enough and for those people there is now an alternative: the Retractable Wii Sports Cuff. All you need do is attach your Wii remote to the neoprene Cuff and then wrap it around your wrist and you’re good to go. The retractable cord can extend to a maximum of 13 inches and when you’re not holding the remote the cord will slide back into the housing and leave your remote dangling from the end.”

LEGO Wii Console

Categories: Funny, Wii Console Hack.

Anything can be made from LEGO including the next gen consoles.

“There is no truer, geekier homage than reconstructing an object of desire in Lego form, so we weren’t surprised to find Brickshelf member, “suu” recreating a Wii with Legos. We especially like how the Lego Wii opens up to reveal scenes from Wii sports, although we don’t remember the option of using a gun in Wii Tennis. That could be fun.”

WiiHelm – the Wiimote Helmet

Categories: Funny, Video, Wiimote Hack.

Get you game on and strengthen your neck muscles at the same time. 🙂

Video after the jump.

“The Nintendo Wii has surely revolutionized gaming as we know it. Rabid fanboys everywhere are now flailing their arms in delight as they wield the Wiimote as a tennis racket, baseball bat or sword. Problem is the average gaming geek is just not up to the strenuous task of vigorous arm movement for longer than 10 minutes. This makes those extended play sessions a thing of the past… and who wants to beef up at the gym just to play video games on your couch? We sure don’t.

Fortunately for cream puffs everywhere the WiiHelm is now available at ThinkGeek. Simply lock your existing Wiimote into the stylish white helmet and free your hands for relaxation… or other important tasks. After extensive scientific study it was found that manipulating muscles in your neck for 10 minutes uses 64% less energy than waving your arms about like a lunatic. The WiiHelm works great with all of your favorite Wii games and the included foot pedal allows easy button presses using minimal toe effort. Plus the amazing Wiimote Saf-T-Lok technology and double reinforced head strap save you thousands of dollars in damaged flat-screen repair charges. ”
