Cut Your Grass with a Wii

Written by Sherlock on Friday, 3 April 2009No Comment

The Wii’s uses beyond gaming have been well documented, from surgery to rehabilitation. Scientists in Denmark have taken the Wii’s uses into the everyday. PC World says a person can control a lawnmower with the flick of a wrist.

The modified Wiimote communicates to a computer through Bluetooth. The mower mimics the motion of the remote. The system also allows the computer to assist the user around tight corners or even finish the job automatically.

This project is part of the Casmobot project, which you can see below.
