+ - Wiimote finding new use as sensors for scientists->

Submitted by garg0yle
garg0yle (208225) writes "Scientists are repurposing Wiimotes (the controllers for the Nintendo Wii console) as scientific sensors to help measure wind speed or evaporation from lakes, among other things. At about $40 per unit, the controller is much cheaper than specialized sensors. The scientists are still considering how to add storage and extend the battery life."
