Crane Games Got Nothing on This: Wiimote-Controlled Giant Robot Arms

 |  |  |  |  |  July 14, 2009


You could, if you are so inclined, go spend a few bucks trying to fish a cheap plushie out of some half-assed crane machine… orrrrr you could jack a pair of giant robot arms, do a little creative programming, and go fishing for BMWs. I know which one I’d pick.

Honestly, this project is just out of control. It looks like something attached to an underwater research station (or the future). Each arm has a reach of 16 meters, and the whole thing weighs fifteen tons. Biggest Wiimote hack? I think so.

So, uh, anyone know where I can get the necessary parts to build my massive grappling arms? Anyone?
