Nexus One Wiimote

What do you get when you combine a Nexus One, a bike handlebar holder and a Wiimote? The answer is a whole lot of awesome.

YouTube user baza210 made this awesome contraption and made a video demonstrating it while playing an old-school SNES ROM. See the video after the break. What makes this even better is that he is playing one of my favorite games of all time, Super Mario World!

This is what makes Android great, so keep coming up with superb ways to use these devices, and we'll keep showing them. [via CrunchGear]

This guy is funny.

"e....whatever that means. "

"Pocketable...okay not that pocketable"

angermeans says:

I think he said practical not pockitable

BenL says:

He said both.

Something like "no one else had made such a svelte and pocketable package as this ... well, maybe it's that practical"

miniZ says:

Is that ROM CyanogenMod?

weehooherod says:

Lol its Game Gripper for keyboardless phones.

weehooherod says:

By the way he is using the free app "WiimoteController" from the android market to make this happen.

You do not need to be rooted.

Perfectly awesome. Can't wait to get my Android phone! (Then with a setup like this I'll never see it again because my son will be using it all the time.....)

svitale says:

does anyone know what kind of desktop/skin he is using?

Starku says:

Now, if someone got to work on making the PS3 controllers work for Android, I would be all set! But, alas, not yet I'm afraid... Still awesome though.
