    Pros:
    Nice Wii Nunchuck. Works perfectly with the Wii (homebrew included). Also useful for it's accelerometer. The accelerometer is a KXSC4. Datasheet: http://www.kionix.com/Product-Specs/KXSC4-2050%20Specifications%20Rev%203.pdf XYZ outputs are easily tapped.
    Cons:
    Joystick feels a bit 'cheap', but no problem. One button did not work, but when opening the Nunchuck I saw it was displaced a b...

    Pros:
    I have modded this gprs module for TTL usage by removing the usb to serial chip and connecting wires straight to the pcb. The module seems to have an IMEI different from 000000 but not sure if unique, check IMEI using: AT+CGSN GPRS is very easy to use, just...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Pros:
