How to build a sword-wielding, tennis-playing, WiiMote-controlled, friendly robot
This is pretty cool... However, I do not feel their job is done yet..
They need to use what they have come up with to build a gigantic R.O.B. The Robot to play 8-bit Gyromite using the new Wii controler.
The original used gyros, a machine to spin them up, and a base to set them on that interfaced to the A and B buttons on the controller. Using gigantic gyros might be potentially disastrous, but I'm sure something with weights could be done. And using the Wii controller to control the robot would sure as hell be easier than the old R.O.B..
