Here’s an industrial robot controlled by a Wimote. The builder writes:

This is a small presentation of a university project I have worked on for the last 6 months.

Using a real-time system the orientation of the Wii Remote is polled and sent to the Stäubli TX 60 industrial robot.

The concept is stolen from a game named Kororinpa but the graphics are little more realistic :-)

This was done at the chair Robotics and Embedded Systems Knoll of the Technical University of Munich.
