Have Wii, will disassemble
January 2, 2012
Little about me... question comes later.
I am new to LMR. I've not built anything yet besides little toy kits this Christmas for my 5 year old son. I have my Start Here bot kit ordered and being delivered next week from Solarbots. Other than that I a Bachelor degree in software engineering. I am collecting my son's broken electronic toys. I've got the base to a really cool RC car that runs and will be a really great base. Also I have something of higher dollar amount that died I would like to inquire about.
Our Wii died. A lighting strike in our driveway shorted out a bunch of stuff in our house, fried the radio in one car, and the computer in my other car. What part of the Wii died? The Video Out on the Wii died. I tried swapping out cables just to make sure and it is only the Video Out that doesn't work. Bummer, eh? I could live without the audio. I can turn on the Wii and hear the thing startup and my remote move through the different windows.
So, what should I do with this piece of wonderfully shelved device?
I know there is a nice motor with the CD drive. But what else would be fun to play with?
It is perfectly alright for someone to answer that I should wait an hold this piece for something more interesting after I get a couple more projects under my belt.
