Using GlovePIE, along with some other programs called BlueSoleil and PPJoy, the young lad above was able to control his high-powered (and, likely, high-dollar) telescope with a Wiimote. We guess we can just chalk this up to another thing the Wiimote can do. Heck, we even present the amazing things the Wii's controller can perform for you folks every week.
Personally, we love seeing this stuff, so if you ever stumble upon this kind of thing, let us know! And be sure to head past the break for video of the Wiimote and telescope being oh-so-happy together.
