Wiimote controls Airsoft Gun over Internet

If you are into automated weapons of medium destruction and automation here is a cool hack you are sure to enjoy. It uses an ioBridge to allow a Wiimote to control a remote airsoft gun. Since there is a camera on the contraption you are able to hunt from anywhere in the world (as long as you have a high speed internet connection). 🙂

"Building from my previous creation I connected my wiimote to a servo via some python and my ioBridge 204 module, only this time I replaced the coilgun with a remotely triggered airsoft gun! Now there are no more issues with reloading a weapons system half a world a way after each shot!"

Thanks for the tip Hans.
