Inspired by last week's physics project, Volkswagen votary Kevin Lee conducted a Wii remote experiment of his own with his 2000 VW Jetta 2.0. Using the controller's accelerometers and a custom GlovePIE script, he was able to measure his steed's g-forces and 0-60 MPH acceleration time. Kevin also set up a spreadsheet with the remote's data to graph every curve, bump, and braking point from his drive. This actually sounds about a thousand times more fun than using one of those goofy steering wheel peripherals that everyone seems to be selling tnowadays.
