Wiimote + Android + Rubberbands = Awesome

Got a bunch of (legal?) SNES or NES roms on your Android device?  Want to play them using a legitimate controller, and not the onscreen keys?  Youtube user baza210 rigged up a doohickey that will allow you to use your Wii Remote (Wiimote for all the hip kids out there) as a Bluetooth controller for some of your games.  A bicycle handlebar and rubberbands hold his Nexus One atop a functioning Wiimote, allowing him to relive the glory days of the 16-bit gaming era with a touch of modern-day tech.

You can check out more things he’s doing with the Nexus One at his blog. For those interested, he’s working on getting a PlayStation controller to work with an Android PSX emulator. (via Android Central)
