Wii Remote Controls 15 Ton Grapplers

Posted By Ben Goulding, 9 July, 2009 | permalink

Now this is pretty cool. A couple of Australian guys decided they wanted to control two 15 ton grapples with a Wii Remote…yes a Wii Remote. They programmed a system using Python which allowed them to replace the machines controllers (joysticks) with the internal sensors from the Wii Remote, so the remote could control the grapplers.

Check out the video. It has quite an odd selection of soundtrack, but who cares?
