Fans of hardcore child-rearing sims will no doubt find the Wii-exclusive "Baby and Me" to be a day-one purchase this year, promising a revolutionary new peripheral in which you stick a Wiimote inside a baby.
That infamous "Mama!!!" video where the Wiimote destroys the flat-screen has been endlessly debated: staged or real? In this, it's safe to assume the Home Shopping Network did not intend to smash its own TV showing off Wii Tennis.
Using a concave mirror, Airborne Ultrasound Tactile Display and Wii Remotes, University of Tokyo researchers have created a tangible hologram projector.

A new patent application Nintendo has filed in the U.S. tips its hand to a potential new focus for the game-maker, and no, it is not core gamers.
According to game site IGN's Wii podcast, the Wii MotionPlus is delayed. According to Nintendo, it's not.
A Nintendo patent from March 2006 shows that the company originally intended a Wii-mote style device for the GameCube. A patent drawing shows how the Wii Remote could link with the GC.
When Nintendo says it puts more smiles on more faces, I'm sure it's not including the maniacal grin one must get blasting away raving Rabbids with this gangsta MP5 mod.

The very definition of 'Neat Hack', Ken Moore shows us his DIY Wiimote Theremin with a virtuoso rendition of a piece traditionally associated with the instrument - the theme from Star Trek.

Gizmodo is gonna think I am copying their homework but, seriously, you gotta see these two dogs dressed as a Wii and a Wiimote for Halloween, and these poor sons of bitches (literally) do not look happy about it.

Fighting games are about timing. These games are razor sharp, competitive. Konami's Wii fighter Castlevania Judgement is different: It's not really about timing and the input isn't so important. It's as sharp as a bowling ball. Lead Castlevania Konami Koji Igarashi explains:
A Japanese modder has mashed Google Maps with the Wii-mote to create "Tokyo-jogging". It works pretty much like Jogging in Wii Sports: Users put the Wii-mote in their pocket and run in place.
