Wii Gift Cards Hacked: Wii Next

So before anyone has really even hacked the Nintendo Wii and done amazing things for it (like, you know, making it play DVDs or something useful), someone has come along and hacked a Wii Gift Card. See, Target is giving out these little plastic cards that are thicker than the average gift card and inside is cute circuitry ripe for the pickin’. The card has a button on the outside that makes the card glow for a few seconds. One MAKE reader dove in and plans on adding some functionality to the LEDs inside. Don’t expect a cheap, DIY Wiimote though.
