DIY - Custom Evo Gaming Mount! (**Wiimote**/SNES/NES/etc.)

I'd like to apologize for the pictures, i had low light at home, but i'm sure you get the point

PROTOTYPE ONE~

BOOMSAKALAKA!!!!



Short List of what my procedure was:
1. unscrew top screws
2. cut to fit Evo landscape
3. put plastic on for fitment before glue.
4. applied glue to plastic, then glued to the wheel.
Waited to dry.


So I am always looking for ways to be crafty, and after CM6 was released, I needed a way to play my NBA Jam, NBA Hangtime, Megaman, etc. with a wiimote.

I was at the dollar store with my gf (Dollar Tree), and saw this Wii Steering wheel for a buck. I said what the heck, i'll buy it and make a project out of it.

Well, about an hour and a half later, i have my customized GameGear-Like Mount(Evo Edition)...

The wheel comes in 2 halves, with 4 screws(one in every corner) keeping them together. I removed the top 2 screws and sliced off the top half just enough to fit my Evo landscape. Reason only the top half was modified is to have back support for the device.

The flat piece of black plastic is actually the back door to an old tv/dvd remote i had lying around, i just sliced off the prongs/clips to make it as flat as possible.

Now the actual bracket like mount which i had superglued to the black plastic cover is from IQ Mobile solutions. I had purchased the car mount from bestbuy and it came with a few extra parts like this one. (its advertised there for an ipod/iphone, but it is completely universal, just mount the small plastic square on the back of your phone)
The product looks like this:




I slide my evo from the top into the little bracket and this thing holds like a freakin CHAMP! I couldn't be happier (except i did a half-ass job on the cutting of the plastic lol but for a DOLLAR WHO CARES!)

I couldn't take a pic while holding 2 handed, had to use a mirror lol















This is the product package I bought from Dollar Tree:



So lemme know what you guys think. Its really a simple procedure, i just can't believe it worked so well first shot!

Please don't post about the thing i had to stick on the back of my phone, if you dont like it, i'm sure you can figure a way to make something else work. I bought it as a car mount, made the sacrifice and it is Saweet! The extra pieces from the kit enabling me to make this was a blessing

Re: DIY - Custom Evo Gaming Mount! (**Wiimote**/SNES/NES/etc.)

Thanks guys!

I sparked this idea a few weeks back, but i don't like ebaying and waiting a week lol. So when i saw this in the dollar store, i jumped right in.

My original idea was to buy this from ebay and create a mount.



but for now, my setup will definitely do

Re: DIY - Custom Evo Gaming Mount! (**Wiimote**/SNES/NES/etc.)

how did you get the wii remote to work with the evo? Everything ive read says that none of them support the sense UI due to some problem HTC introduced in the bluetooth stack call library?

Im running rooted OMJ 1.8 rom just curious thanks.

And your wheel is awsome.

Oh that makes sense then hes not using HTC sense UI. I suppose ill just wait till HTC fixs the bug if ever, I do like the Sense UI.

But the whole setup does look awesome thanks for sharing.

your original wheel idea is pretty neat man.. you should submit it to www.hack-a-day.com i think theyd dig it.. theres TONs of mods like these and other gaming components.. might even give ya ideas..

i think the controller(pictured) would be great.. i think you said that with the mount the fitting was pretty secure.. youd probably need one a bit shorter so that you cant see the post the mount is attached to, but you should be able to pull it off exactly the same way..

Great Mod! and i dont even own an EVO

**edit** nvm, i guess youd just use a shorter battery cover lol
