Cool man. So any tips you can give me for the cheapo RF Receiver/Transmitter set, like hoe to make them talk to each other? got any code snippets for that part?

they behave like a wire, but only for digital signals, all you need to know is how to use USART on a microcontroller

Hi Frank,

Question - can you please explain how you made the connector for the nunchuck? Im looking to use my nunchuck but i really don't want to cut the cable. 

Thanks

I suggest you buy http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.4115 , there's no point in making a connector my original way now

if the same pins are connected, will this code work for a $50 board?

I mean, they both use c, or i there something special about the arduino

I was looking on youtube for wii hacks and the majority used the ardunio.  Is there anything special about the ardunio? Is it just serial communication with the wii receiver?

Arduino has easy ways to communicate with I2C, which seems like why it is the most common board to be used with the wii stuff.

the arduino is just a mega168 with extras like usb and i2c... same *could* be achieved with the $50 board.

I <3 Deal Extreme, free shipping worldwide on cheap Hong Kong electronics!

I just bought a couple of these wii nunchucks, if you do cut them the wires inside aren't the same colours as those of the original parts. If you pull apart the connector you can see what colour on goes to which pin on the connector and check it against the original part. Its only a five minute job to do but don't get freaked out if you open it and the colours are different!

lol i told my friend and now he hates you for dishonouring the wii  ;D oh well freakin wiked tho
Thats not dishonoring the Wii. Actually, Nintendo may want to copy his idea likewith the little RC Mario Cart things. BTW Great Idea!

very good job.
although it'll be even more interesting if BLUETOOTH was used, instead of rc.

So i have a few questions on the arduino pwm. i want to control to ESC for my motors and they use a pwm input. how will this hook up to the arduino and  still use the wii? i know this is a simple question but i havent see it explained, I.E. which pin to use and the code for it.
