    Hello Everyone, jhust here to tell how HOmebrew Saved the life of a woman in a hospital
    I am a Biomedical Engineer ad i work taking care of instruments inside a hospital during surgeries and such.
    Yesterday, a doctor was aperating a woman who had a heart attack, so time was very important; he needed to measure the blood flow(for some reason, i am not a Doctor to know exactly why), but the instrument that measures blood flow had the angle system damaged, so it couldn't be used, so i had a member of the staff use my Wii monitoring the angle with the Level tool Homebrew Software and with the wii remote attached to the instrument, we managed to get the right angle to measure blood flux and thus, continue with the Surgery.
    Wii Hoimebrew saves lives, just as Creativity. Thanks to the creator of Level Tool.
    And by the way, today is my Birthday!!!!!

    You posted the thread again, cause you corrected something?
    There's something like an EDIT button on the bottom right of the post...
    Anyway, only mods can delete / lock topics

    Yes, I remember a thread where there was a custom Wii made by Nintendo for hospitals. It could read games from an internal HD

    Doubt anyone would have the imagination to come up with this unless it was true, so I'm going to assume it is.
    That's pretty awesome [​IMG]

    I don't think you can actually put Homebrew on those Wiis.

    I guess he was talking about his personal Wii (he took it to the hospital? lolwut) [​IMG]

    I didn't imagine you would ask about the wii on the Surgery Room, the place where our department is(IB Workshop) is pretty close to the surgery room, so the Remote does not lose connection with the console, that is how a person monitored the angleon the software while we moved the remote and talked through a cell phone, we needed to act fast, so it was the best thing i made up; i took the wii there because we kinda like playing old school SNES games on SNES9X as well as some other games
