Hi people! Well, my own Arduino should be shipping soon, I wanted to have it in order to make a turn on/off switch with a relay to 220V (I’m from argentina, that’s my power supply). I would like to control the leds power on via the Arduino and maybe some helping lamp (so I won’t fall into a pit in the darkness!!!).

A lot more can be done with Arduino, what ideas do you people have in mind?

I’m really interested on how we can hack the wii to work with the controller like this video shows:

Also it would be awesome to use Arduino to controll a bunch of touch sensors… or better yet cameras smile

to hack a wii there is a lot of soft but you need to create programs for your use
an exemple: you can find many things on: http://hackawii.com/
you can use the wiimote like dj as on:http://www.djwiij.com/
you can find lot of things on:http://www.wiimoteproject.com/index.php
all you need is a BT conection and wiimote for many project

you can see other uses, (search “johnny lee” on you tube)

You *should* be able to intercept the i2c signal the wii sends to the bluetooth module.....  I’m not sure because i never used a wii or looked what was inside, but i recall talks about this on the arduino forums

fifaille: what’s going on in that video is that the wii is not sending data to the computer.  rather, the wii is sending data to the arduino chip which is then controlling the servo motors.

With 4 ultrasonic sensors you can know what’s the user side of the table and rotate the display automatically.

Haptic feedback with solenoids and rumble motors. Very useful for virtual keyboard.
