    Only way I can think of would be to create some sort of homebrew app with a wifi link that goes to the machine, though I highly doubt it's possible.

    the nxt doesnt use wifi
    it only has a blue tooth receiver on certain models

    the video is most likely fake
    there is a RTC add on for the NXT so it can be programmed to start a chain of commands at a certain time

    I know that my nxt has bluetooth but in that video it looked like they found a way to use the wifi on the ds to emulate bluetooth would that work?

    Most likely, the button presses send a signal over wifi to a computer
    The computer then sends signals over Bluetooth

    Yeah that's what the poster says it's doing, if you click the website link in the description there's a diagram and an explanation of what he's done. Whether it's real or not I don't know, but running Google Translate gives you the gist of how it's running in a fair bit of detail.

    To those suggesting a custom homebrew - why not use DS2WIN (or was it PC?) or something similar? No need to write a custom program when you can just emulate a gamepad... (That's the only use I've found for DS2WIN, due to my particular wireless set up the other functions don't work very well, or for very long before losing the connection)

    Halo
    It is totally fake. The NXT only has Bluetooth capability, not wifi. The NDs only has wifi cap., not Bluetooth.
