PulseVU - Nintendo Wii Hardware Mod - Custom LED Effects

This is one of the first hardware mods I have seen for the Wii. These guys have created a little module that does different effects with the blue LEDs on the Wii Disc Drive such as playing along with the music. Maybe this video explains it better:




From their website: SICKmods

How can I install a PulseVU into my Wii?

We will be selling manufactured units at this site by the end of the weekend, for just $20. If you're a programmer, you can instead build your own with the soon to be released source code and schematics.

Aurush, you are the retard. Sure, it pulses when you get a message, but did it ever occur to you that some people might want the light to be on even when they DON'T have a new message? OMG NO WAI!!!!!!!!

Arash said...

Sorry Chelsea, the only retard here is you! Aurash never claimed that people do or don't want a permanent "light on" solution. He is meerly pointing out that this claim of a "hardware mod" is incorrect and a fraud. I;m not sure why you decided to get up in his face for no good reason and that you were trying to disprove a claim that he never made. Relax next time, you idiot.

Saleh said...

You're both idiots...especially aurash. Of course it's a hardware mod, how the hell do you think they got it to respond and pulse to audio?

...dumbass
