Johnny Lee gave us a taste of his brilliance by sharing his experiments in which he uses a simple Wii remote to create a low cost multi touch display either on a surface or in thin air as you see in the movie Minority Report.

Wireless (S)NES Controller for Wii

All I can say is: “WOW!”

Mark Feldman felt (and who doesn’t) that Virtual Console games on Wii are experienced much better when played with their original controllers, so what did he do? He converted original NES and SNES controllers to wireless versions, compatible with the Nintendo Wii! And he even put up a website to show us how it’s done. See links below.

Anyone who owns a Wii knows how much fun it is to create Mii characters. These are some of my designs:

Hitler, Lenin and Fidel…
