HSN Wii Fail

The Home Shopping Network host was demonstrating Wii tennis when his accessory flew into the TV. Yes he had the wrist strap secure, but not the plastic tennis racket attachment.

Always double check your wiimote, or you Wiil be sorry.

This is why wrist straps are worn while playing Wii. When the guy calls for momma it just makes me feel sad.

Man Hacks Nintendo GameCube Controller for Use on the Wii – Video

classic gamecube controller wii Man Hacks Nintendo GameCube Controller for Use on the Wii   Video

Everyone has a few old GameCube controllers laying around. Rather than throwing out the cash one of those Classic Controllers for your Wii in order to play some of that retro content, why not give this hack a try instead?

It allows you to convert ancient Cube controllers into Wii-ready peripherals. The hack does require the purchase of a PIC18F4520 microcontroller, though. Which may just offset the price of the hack in the first price. Still, the video is intriguing at least.

truemotion 3d demo TrueMotion 3D Allows Truer Motion Control Than Wii   Video

Nintendo and their Wiimote may have opened the floodgates for motion-sensitive gaming, but a company called Sixense might have leapfrogged the field with their system called TrueMotion 3D. The tech doesn’t rely solely on an accelerometer like most devices, it uses a magnetic field to track both of your hand’s positions in 3D space. Kind of cool.

The refresh rate is an amazing ten milliseconds and they boast accuracy up to a millimeter. Developers, including Activision and EA, have begun to show interest. If you need more convincing, check out the tech demo below:
