I always thought the wii wasn't for me. I find a lot of elements...stupid and useless... I've had multiple chances to own a wii, but have turned them down... Lately a couple of good games have come out, but not enough to convince me to buy it though. So, do you think the wii is worth buying?

Okay.... So, a couple of days ago, my friend was running around and ran through the cable for my Gamecube controller connected to my Wii, the Wii fell a good 3 feet (just an estimate). And now the Eject Disk Button is jammed a little and every once in a while the Wii completely shuts it self off. Not like pressing the off button, but like pulling the power plug. I can't send it to Nintendo because I have homebrew on it and I don't want to lose it. What can I do?

I remeber back to the summer I was at an arcade playing Ghost Squad. Now that it is out on the wii, the fun was only half way there. I played with the wii zapper, and as much fun as it was, it just isn't cutting it. My favorite part was the force feedback gun that gave some recoil. I decided to go making my own, but I can't think of something to give enough punch. I plan to make a PVC gun outline and encase the wii remote. I would then rig a trigger on the PVC rifle to pull the fire button on the wii remote. From there, I could connect the wires so at a certain point on the PVC trigger pull, an electrical current would be completed activating the recoil. I started with thinking about takeing out the rumble motors in some old game controlers, but that would only go so far. I really wanted a staight back and forth movement. I started to think about taking a piston similar to an airsoft gun, were the motor cranks a gear that pulls the pistion back. This gear as some teeth shaved clean so that after so far of an extend, the teeth would inentially slip causing the built up spring to push the piston back into the starting position. Before it got too complicated and I started to build it, I wanted to make sure this was possible. Is it possible/practical? What type of feedback should I use, and were can I get it? -John

For those who are thinking to themselves "Jonny Chung beat you to it long time ago".... Don't jump to conclusion. I'm here to use his idea and give it a little twist. (if its possible that is) So let me know if this is worth pursuing... because i'm sure someone must have thought of this already... I'm also nowhere close to being a developer... with that said lets jump into what i want to call Basically i want to use our EYES to reflect Infrared to the wiimote to calibrate the movement ... and capture it and do something cool with it... - steer a car in a racing game... - look around in a 3d environment just by moving ur head... - maybe even use it as a mouse and Wink with one eye to click? im waiting for a friend of mine to find time to build me that IR LED board Jonny Chung used in one of his videos. IF anyone thinks this is something to look into, I would like to be notified.

My sister finally unboxed our Wii after it just sitting there for a few months and shes been bugging me to connect it to the internetz. So anyway Nintendo being Nintendo they made the Wii without a Ethernet port so I was thinking I could just make a Ethernet to USB adaptor. Would this work with my Wii?

Hey yeah I could have probably put this in a better category but about the only people I care about adding are people from the K'nex section. So is anyone getting Modern Warfare Reflex? I gotta send my wii in for repair which kind of sucks seeing how I know I won't get it back until way after Reflex comes out (though I'll probably be hanging out at my friend's and sister's playing MW2 on their Xboxes) so don't expect an FC anytime soon. I did awesome in WaW. My starting account had about a 1.4 K/D and I never played an online FPS for wii before. My main account after that has a 2.23 and rising. I haven't used it much since starting to snipe and shotgun. My sniping account has an even 2.0 I think last time I checked. I started a shotgunning account right before my wii broke but I don't remember my K/D. I know it was at least over 1.5 and maybe over 2.0. And then I made another account for lolz to see how high I could get my K/D and had somewhere in the 7.0 range. So yeah point is it would be beneficial to add me =P

Alright, I had a nice idea. I notice there are few Wii Zapper peripherals that are easy to use. Most are cheap pieces of plastic that cost much more than they need to and they still suck. There was one though that looked promising but still wasn't quite that comfortable. Here's the challenge. Make the easiest to use zapper body construction for a Wii remote and nunchuck. Some ideas are: Add a stock. Maybe some sort of stand you can rest the gun on to make aiming even easier? Add K'nex levers and buttons that press the Wii controller buttons. Make a trigger that presses the Z button and make a fake charging handle that presses the C button maybe? Tilt the remote sideways so it's easier to reach all the top buttons. Remember, comfort and ease of use. Those are important. It'd also be nice if it looked decent. Think any of you can handle it?

I just bought a year old used wii. I am worried. I have wi-fi. I want to use the wii with wi-fi. I had read that when the wii launched, a wiiconnect24 update made some wii units completely unusable! I am worried. The people who I bought it from never used wi-fi on the wii. It had a 1 year warranty, which expires in about 3 weeks. I got a good deal on the wii, so shut up. Question: If I update it now, will it crash??

The Wii Speak, though kinda cheap, finally allows Wii users to talk to each other in online games, just like the 360 and PS3! .... except they didn't have to buy anything extra .... and the only game you can talk online is Animal Crossing So is it possible to some how set up the Wii Speak to allow you to talk while playing SSB Brawl, for example, while online with your friends?
