When Nintendo opted to use the Bluetooth wireless technology for its motion sensing controller, I'm not sure they knew what an awesome can of worms they were opening. Like releasing mod tools for games, the Wii controller has given the community a whole new toy to play with. Using simple tools, any PC can read all the telemetry data from the Wiimote.
Below are some of the first results: a remote Roomba controller, Half Life played with the Wiimote, and most impressive, a whole smart home that can be controlled with the Wii, from the lights to the DVR. And this is only the tip of the iceberg. I can't wait to see what will be coming up next.
