    Step 1: Get a Wii.
    Well, I already failed.

    Is it wrong for a boy my age to lack a Wii?

    I knew it was only a matter of time. Im just suprised it took this long to get it done. Im even more suprised LucasArts didnt jump on this potential cash cow with this controller when they launched this system.

    Yes, yes he does. Thanks for the contribution.

    Looks really useful if he can improve the tracking problems. Possibly adding more IR sensors to the Wiimote so it can see the beacon more of the time, or adding more beacons of different wavelengths so at least one is visible to the controller. The molecule manipulator would be really useful I reckon. Plus this is probably as close to a real lightsaber as I`m ever going to get :D

    I consider my $15 light saber from Wal-Mart better. It doesn`t cut through stuff, but if you hit somebody really hard, it would probably leave a very "real" mark. Plus, it lights up and makes sounds too. Totally better than this fake virtual Wii crap.

    Or you could buy a Wii game and play it. Not real interesting..."You sound like a dog with peanut butter on the roof of your mouth" "Say, I like crepes"

    That was interesting and i would do that if i had use for it. I`ve already linked my Wii remote to my computer for things like playing snes games and such but I don`t have 4 IR lights :-(.

    WOW I didn`t think that it was possible to make the Wii freakin` more boring than science videos from the 80`s but this dude found a way.
