Sword-Swinging Killer Wiibot

Tales of Wiimote reverse engineering abound, but this one gets my prize for independent development: an industrial robotic arm set up by USMechatronics engineers to read the remote's commands. Put a tennis racket, sword or anything you want into the robot's arm and swing away. Technically, the robot only recognizes certain movement patterns, responding with pre-recorded movements (it's not a one-to-one imitation), but this still rules.
