Super simple gaming controller for Android or iPhone

If you’ve got an iPhone or Android device that you use with a Wii remote when gaming, this quick hack will give you the third hand you need to manage all of that hardware. [Syanni85] mounted his Android phone to a Wii wheel for just a few dollars in parts. He ran across the wheel itself at the dollar store, and the phone is held in place using a universal mounting bracket. A small square pad sticks onto the back of any device and mates with a base. He cut off the¬†unnecessary¬†parts of the base and glued it to the back of the wheel.

If you haven’t tried using a Wii remote with your phone yet, find out how to do it with iPhone or with Android.

  1. Simple, cheap, looks great and should work great to. Probably not a hack but definitely a cool mod that’s worth the effort :)

  2. Simple, cheap, looks good and is very much a hack. The wheel was certainly never intended for this. What more is required for something to qualify as a hack?

  3. This definitely qualifies as a hack. Earlier today I found out how to use a Wii remote as a controller for PSX4Droid and I was thinking about something like this.
    I’m sure you can get these Wii wheels used for cheap.

  4. And think of how impressed your boss and co-workers will be when you pull that out of your briefcase at your next management meeting.

  5. Now if you could only get that Wiimote speaker to pipe out the sound… then you could have some pseudo-surround sound.

    Course, I’ve never actually gotten the whole Wiimote+iDevice thing working, so maybe the speaker does work and I’m just out of the loop. Regardless, I love this little “hack” :) Great answer to the lack of physical buttons on the iPhone.

    The thing would look so great running this way, but it’s the lame duck winmo dragging me back again.

    Next phone-Android.

  7. I was playing an online fps on my iPhone and the controls were difficult to use, so I was wondering if there was a way to connect my ps3 controller to my iPod. I searched around but all I could find was the wii remote, and i wanted to use sticks instead of tilt. Anyone know if this would work?
