Wii Are the Champions

My pal Doctor Popular has just released the newest edition of his yo-yo centered vlog The Popcast, and I think this one will appeal to fans of all stripes. You see, while Doc talks shop and wows us with some more of his unbelievable yo-yo stylings, this time around he also spotlights the work of Nonpolynomial Labs' Kyle Machulis. Kyle’s done some fascinating things using a Wii-mote and a yo-yo.

(No. Not those kinds of things!)

But anyway, peep The Popcast, and then go check out some of the work that Johnny Lee is doing with the Wii technology. There are less nerdy ways to spend your time, but they aren’t near as entertaining.

I Can't get enough of Johnny Lee, he's my newest hero!

Matt said...

Does anyone else get the feeling that Doc was having more then a little fun with the music triggers?

Church said...

Damn.

Just, damn.

I tend to agree, Ross!

Yeah, Ant, Lee's fast becoming one of mine too.

Matt, Doc's always having too much fun.

And, Church, I think you pretty much summed it up.

I'm glad this mod has reached its target audience: Doctor Popular.

Fun fact, qDot is most interweb famous as "the guy that coined the term teledildonics".

Shael, it's funny you mention that. I was never interested in a Wii until Johnny Lee's videos started going up. I still don't want one.. but I'd love to have a Wiimote... and a supercomputer of some sort.

Z. said...

Yeah, Shael, I'm still waiting for Doc's "Yo-yo Hack a Day" project to kick off. ;)

And, Doc, if I wasn't assured of qDot's genius already - I was, thought - I'd certainly be now!

Now Autechre and Aphex Twin will have to learn the yo-yo.

I anxiously await the Aphex Twin yo-yo album.
