Wiimote on your XBox 360

[UberNoober147] and [Carey] both sent in this round about hack. The Wiimote is interfaced with a PC. The PC outputs to a micro-controller circuit that outputs PlayStation 2 control signals. That’s connected to a XFPS – a PS2 to XBox 360 controller converter. It’s definitely round about, but it works.

    That round about is about one step away from being a rube goldberg machine. You do what you have to to get the job done, and they did it well.

    I’m very impressed, I likey.

    I wonder how much lag there is… XD

    omfg, this is teh pwn
    excellent work

    To bad there’s no auto-follow at the end of the screen.

    But job well done indeed.

    You could probably do this in a single upper-end AVR and a bluetooth chip for the PS2 emulation side, then connect to a PS2 pad to Xbox 360 adapter.

    This setup is like using a cray supercomputer to add up how much $ you spent at walmart. Good idea, incomprehensable design. you should have left out the pc.

    While this hack is sweet for what it does, the guy said “Reticule movement on screen would correspond to where the Wiimote is pointing (via its IR sensors)”

    I call, shenanigans on that: he must be using the accelerometers for pointer position. First, I can’t see the IR sensor bar in anywhere in the picture and it would have to be on/under the TV for it to work. Second, he doesn’t talk at all about how you go about getting the sensor bar to interface with a pc (what kind of signal it outputs etc.) And lastly, watching the game play it just feels like he’s using the accelerometer.

    All in all though, he did a kick-ass job. This hack is full of WIN. I’d love to see a DIY kit + source

    The “sensor bar” isn’t actually a sensor. It simply emits a pair of ir signals at a known (relatively) geometry. To demonstrate this, some people have tried replacing the sensor bar with other sources of ir (e.g., lit candles) and it works!
