Use your Wii to defuse a bomb

I already think the Wii is pretty great. I’m an excellent bowler and can totally hold my own at boxing. Not so great at tennis, though.

And get this: According to Yahoo! Games, the U.S. Department of Energy has made it possible to defuse bombs using the Wii remotes! They’ve replaced the typical joystick with the ultra-sensitive Wii remote and have made great strides in controlling their fancy bomb-defusing robots. "By virtue of its unique motion-detection capabilities, the Wiimote has
streamlined the process and allows operators to focus more on the
collected data and less on how to steer."

Maybe I’ll work on honing my Wii skills tonight….you never know when I might get called in for some major covert operation to save the world.
