I love this little Kickstarter project which has received some serious heat in the time it's been running. The creator wants to build an app he can release on the App Store (hopefully for free), which will pair a Wiimote with iPhone or iPod Touch for some serious music-making.
Leaked on the retailer Gamestop's website in the artwork for the FlingSmash game is the "Wii Remote Plus," which looks to be a wiimote with inbuilt MotionPlus, for more accurate real-time control.
Do you have tiny, child-sized hands? Is the Wiimote just too darned big for you to grip comfortably? Well, Power A's new MiniRemote and MiniChuck controllers are 35% smaller. But don't expect to use them without getting mercilessly teased. [Kotaku]
The Wii has a handful of great games, and an even smaller handful of great games that truly exploit the Wiimote's capabilities. The rest? Complete waggleriffic crap. Here, SCEA's Rob Dyer gives some tough love to would-be PS Move developers.
Sony barely mentioned pricing with their PlayStation Move motion controller, only noting that the combo pricing with PlayStation Eye and a game will cost less than $100. But by our back-of-the-envelope calculations, the experience is going to be really expensive.
This man, Jack Rossi, created a simulation proton pack + thrower so he can play the Wii version of Ghostbusters with as much realism as possible. This is the result.
In what may be a precursor to the hippie/robot showdown we've always hoped for, musician Patrick Flanagan has founded Jazari, a three-piece robotic drum circle with some impressive grooves. If that's not fun enough, it's all controlled by two Wiimotes.
HP has developed an inertial accelerometer that's so sensitive, it can detect a change in the position of its center chip of less than one-billionth the width of a human hair.
Controllers can be a hassle to keep track of, and often clutter up valuable home entertainment space. But here comes the Wall Clip, what Mary Poppins would surely have used if the Banks children had been gamers.
The Classic Controller Pro for Wii has been available in Japan for some time already, but it's making its way to these here parts this April.
You wouldn't think a third party could clone a Nintendo product and then make it better, but Nyko may have done that with the Wand+.
Nyko's Wand debuted last year at CES, and this year they have something to answer the question of why people need a Wiimote AND a Wii Motion Plus separately. It's called the Wand+.
