Dhreck, an enterprising modder has moded the first ever WiiMote encased purely in Hemp twine. This amazing Hemp-Mote is absolutely playable, all buttons, accelerometers and the infrared camera accounted for. We must give Dhreck a strong salute for this mod.
Recently he has posted a series of Tutorials that let you know that how he made the basic smaller Wii-Mote that’s underneath all this Hemp. Check out his Tutorials here if you want to know how to build your own:
A 17 years old instructables member has shared his wonderful work, the help of which you can build your own remote-controlled based Vehicle. He presented his ideas and step by step guide here.
To make this crazy build, you’ll just be requiring: standard Lego NXT kit, computer with Bluetooth and wiimote. The tutorial will give you the clear idea of controlling Lego NXT by Bluetooth using a Wiimote.

Nullvalu has shared his youngest son’s Crazy Wiimote Pinewood Derby Car build in 2011. The following components were used in his construct:
It is not new about unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) in military and civil community. These UAVs are widely being used for remote sensing applications including observation, exploration, mapping or inspection of areas, for taking agricultural pictures or traffic monitoring etc.
Quadrocopter, a latest automated visual tracking approach is the modernized UAVs is equipped with latest and powerful technologies. It contains brushless motors, radiation and acceleration sensors, onboard 8-bit microcontroller, Wii remote IR camera and much more. Main parts, besides localization, of this abandonment are control of the flight, generating a map and planning a path in three dimenstions.
Further information can be found on the project site here. Watch the videos below to get the clear picture about this powerful Gadget.
David Dearden modded an original Nintendo NES Controller and a Wiimote. He was able to use the original Nintendo NES controller on the Nintendo Wii console.
You can watch the video below that demonstrate how cut the circuit board from a Nintendo Classic controller.
Many of the “Gunframes” that game accessory companies make for Wii FPS games are not really up to snuff. These gunframes are meant to make the Wii controls like actual guns, but they end up with the B or trigger button, and ignore the other controls.
WeeP5 has solved this problem and is actually a fully functional Wiimote. In this the B button is the trigger, A button is under the foregrip, 1 and 2 are on opposite sides near the front, the D-pad and Wii remote are jutting out of the left side, and the +, -, and home buttons are on the top just above the ammo clip.
TEDTalks Building sophisticated educational tools out of cheap parts, Johnny Lee demos his cool Wii Remote hacks, which turn the $40 videogame controller into a digital whiteboard, a touchscreen and a head-mounted 3D viewer. This talk is an amazing example of how the Internet and social media can leverage technology.

cbm104 has presented a nice tutorial that will surely help you to build your own Solar rechargeable Wiimote. Major components used by cbm104 in his build are :

Nice to see that with some modifications that the Wii is available to everyone.
“This instructable will show you how to rewire the button of the Wiimote to bigger buttons so that persons with disabilities will be able to efficiently use the Wiimote by not having to press the small buttons on the Wiimote. The buttons that will be rewired will be the A button, B button, the directional pad (up, down, left, right), and the Home button.”
If you are into music and like to hack your Wii have a look at this Wiimote AirDeck Virtual Theremin project. It allows you to get your DJ on and bust out some tunes.
“Here is some video I shot shortly after my project presentation which demonstrates the AirDeck virtual theremin application I designed and explains some of the features. It uses the Wii remote as an input mechanism by tracking motion with Infrared LEDs. The AirDeck is written in Java with the WiiUseJ API for handling Wii remote events and the JSyn API for internal synthesis. It can control MIDI out as well as offering a simple DJ scratch interface for real-time manipulation of sound samples similar to a DJ scratching with vinyl records.”
