Wii hack promises Remote vibration

Application offers vibration relaxation

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Jokes about alternative uses for the vibration functions on some gadgets, including mobile phones, are nothing new. But, a group of Wii boffins claim to have developed an alternative use for the console’s Remote that’s, well, just for the ladies.

A group of programmers going by the name of Team DWiildo have created WiiBrator, which is described simply as an “advanced vibrator simulator”. According to a report by website nintendowiifanboy.com, the application is different to previous attempts at getting the Remote to vibrate because WiiBrator can be run directly through the console, rather than a PC.

The team’s website also suggests that WiiBrator could be used with the Wii Zapper or Wii Wheel, although the developers don’t advise this.

Team DWiildo isn’t stopping at basic vibration though and is considering ways to expand the application, including linking it up to an image slideshow and enabling online multi-player action.

Of course, the application could be perfectly innocent and have been designed simply for enhanced gameplay…
