Wii Remote and Nunchuk
Following up the console spotlight on the Nintendo Wii, here's a look at the PCB inside the main controllers for the console; the Wii remote and the Nunchuk add-on.
The Wii remote is used either in one hand for motion controlled games or in a horizontal position for more traditional games. The Nunchuk is plugged into the bottom of the Wii remote to give additional controls for games. In the above images, the gold connector at the bottom of the printed circuit is where the Nunchuk plugs into. The ability to create different control methods allows develops to create new ways as well as the more traditional ways for gamers to control their games.
