Here’s one for the car enthusiasts out there..

After seeing another wiimote implementation shown in physics class, Kevin Lee from California, thought “why not use the wiimote’s built in 3-axis accelerometers to measue g-forces, acceleration and even calculate my own 0-60mph times!”

Genius! There are already devices that perform this function, such as Pioneer’s AVG-VDP1. This and other solutions are usually a lot more costly than just getting a Wii. And hey if you already have a Wii, well your laughing.

He even provides the script so you can try it yourself.
