NES Lightgun wiimote mod

[F00 f00] sent in his friends lightgun wiimote mod. The IR sensor is carefully de-soldered and relocated to the barrel and the trigger is wired into the fire button. There’s a video of game play, but you can hit it over at acidmods.

    Pretty Cool, but I would feel bad tearing up a vintage light gun… Now, if someone could just build one that shot airsoft bb’s, mabey then i’d think about sacrificing one.

    FP, BTW (sorry, refreshed the page and this mod came up, had to say it…)

    Another Wiimote hack for the betterment of mankind!

    There are plenty of light guns that have broken over the years; i dunno if this was one of ‘em, but I’d rather a broken one find a new use than be thrown away.

    That’s cool. First thing that popped into my head when I saw this, was now make it reversible (via creative wiring and a small socket in the wii-mote) or mount more of the Wii-mote guts inside the light gun( at the appropriate orientation for gestures with the light gun to translate into game actions)

    to vladsinger, I saw that; I was just refering to how he himself used a real one.

    they make a commercial product that does the same for around what the parts would cost if you don’t have them on hand.
