      After burning out 2 Wii Nunchuck   :'(  I wised up and built a direct plug for the Wii Nunchuck. Seeeduino builds a Brick shield that accepts 3 & 4 servo plugs and 3 Busses. I will publish a tutorial about this mod later. What is so great about this plug its a direct plug-in and it uses all of the Nunchuck libraries WITHOUT any modification to the code!! Truly a plug and play! Also it cost only 6 dollars total if you already have an seeeduino Brick Shield!

Think I am going to use a Wireless Nunchuck NEXT (WiCHUCK?) Found them on Ebay for 12 USD. Think about the wireless robots you can build with that for 13 dollars! Alot Cheaper than a remote or an XBEE!  :o

Questions or suggestions?  :-?
