My god, this is totally awesome! These guys built a pretty big robot controlled by the Wiimote, to play tennis en slash with a sword.

It’s interesting to note that the signal from the Wiimote can be used easily by other hardware. Perhaps this is also part of Nintendo’s strategy.

Darwiin Remote is a little application that enables you to catch the Wiimote signal on a Mac and even use it as an alternative to the remote you got with the Mac. Strangely, the Wiimote is made of the identical same type of plastic as the white Mac accessoiries, like the remote and the adapter.

Painters will tell you there’s a huge amount of diffent colours of white. Coincidence?
