Although you can’t play with Wiimote controlled 15 ton grapples in the living room. This hack isn’t anything like the Lego Mindstorms NXT Robot controlled with a Wiimote or the Wiimote operated Lawnmower. This one has gone king-size. This thing is a beast of a robotic monster and rigging it with a Wiimote making this one of the heavy duty Wiimote hacks we’ve seen.
The Wiimote + the Python programmed control is even more awe inspiring because each grapple arm can spin at a top speed of 72kms/hour or 12 revolutions per minute. Each arm needs to avoid collision with the other. And with each having a reach of 16 meters it’s recommended to stay as far back as possible.
