Wiimote controlled coil gun

First, a note from the inventor:

I’ve seen some of ioBridge projects recently, and in inspired by “ServoBeer” I thought I’d try my hand at one too! I’m really interested in pervasive sensors and opening up more intuitive ways to control systems and have been fascinated by all the great ways the wiimote been used.

Now, for the real story. Look at this thing. It was made by a guy named Jay who is clearly a Russian spy. It has a pair of balls and shoots a small metal projectile at books. It is completely controlled via Wiimote and an induction coil from an old golf putter. He took it apart, reassembled it in railgun form, and can now control this little bugger from anywhere you have Internet access.
