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.”
The Wii Homebrew Channel is moving full speed ahead. Looks like we have lots of great things coming in the near future.
“The Homebrew Channel is a channel for launching Wii homebrew applications without the need to run the Twilight Hack first. It will list apps stored and organised on an SD card in a nice little GUI, which you can very easily customise with descriptions and shiny little .png icons all by yourself if you want. You can also launch homebrew apps via TCP (with a correctly configured PC) or USB Gecko. Both of those built in options make it extremely convenient for testing out new code, as well as a general purpose homebrew launcher. You’ve seen the video,
now try it yourself!”
There is now a way to control your LEGO creations using your Nintendo Wiimote!
“OnBrick is a 20 button programmable NXT remote controller for PDAs & PCs, using Bluetooth. Each RC button executes a user defined program – so now you can play with your NXT robots while building them. Pretty useful for testing sensors too. There are 36 actions, most with a single parameter, including calibrated moves, wait for sensor events, simple sounds, individual motor control & power settings, loops… ”
Here is a neat way to make some cool music with your Wiimote!
“Nice experiment using my Nintendo Wiimote as a controller for the OSC frequency of my Moog Little Phatty… (Check out the OSC knob cursor moving on the LP)
It sound like a Theremin ”
Virtual Hosting has put together a HUGE list of 100 things you can do with the Wii. See the first 10 below, read the full article for the remaining 90 uses.
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.

Why not make music with your wiimote!
“This video is about controlling a modular synth with Nintendo’s wiimote gamepad, using Doepfer A-100, Doepfer MCV24, Wiimote and computer. Softwares used are Bluesoleil, Glovepie and midiox. This video is not an artistic demonstration but a technical explanation of this system (that can be used for making music ofc).”

A quick hack and allows a Nintendo Nunchuck to control this RC Robot.
Video after the jump.
“I connected a Wii Nunchuck controller to an Arduino, which takes the data from the controller’s I2C data bus, decodes it, and send the data to the robot with a radio transmitter. Charlie uses a radio receiver to get the data, and it will control the drive servo system and the pan tilt servo system using the data. The Nunchuck has a 3 axis accelerometer, a joystick, and 2 buttons, it is absolutely awesome to use with a RC robot like this.”
