View Full Version : Cool Wiimote Hacks
Currently I've been a little addicted to TED Talks. Here (http://www.ted.com/talks/johnny_lee_demos_wii_remote_hacks.html)'s a cool one about things that can be done with a Wiimote.

I know its not technically a wiimote, but I discovered this nifty hack where you can use the Playstation Move (plus a turntable, some copper wire and a bit of DIY) to measure the rotation of the Earth, as well as the location of geographic north and and your current latitude!
For the full write up, including everything you need to know to repeat the experiment, check out this link (http://pabr.org/copernitron/copernitron.en.html). I fully intend to do this at some point in the near future, if I can locate a half decent turntable.
I know thw Wiimote has almost nothing to do with it (http://youtu.be/7hag6Zgj78o), but even so, pretty cool.
