You gotta love them hackers. Always frankensteining crap together to make the impossible seem like a walk in the park. In this case, a modder has managed to control an Xbox 360 through a Nintendo Wiimote (last time, it was a PC) . And not just some jerky omg-I-did-it-but-just-barely kind of controlling, but with anti-acceleration and smoothing algorithms included to make the hack playable. And how does this work? Well, here’s the gist:
- The Xbox 360 is connected to the XFPS PS2 to 360 adapter
- … which is connected to a big black box Microcontroller “with custom firmware emulating a PS2 controller”
- … which is connected to a Samsung Q1 PC with custom Wii remote firmware
- … which is connected via Bluetooth to the Wii remote itself.
If all this technical explanation still doesn’t convince you, just watch the awesome video below.
