I love K'NEX. It is incredibly useful on top of being very entertaining! I created this Wii Remote Rack because I did not like having my remotes being banged up in other places (we used to hang them by their straps on nails in the wall).
-- K'NEX Wii Remote Rack --
They sit in our bookshelf near the couch for quick access.
Here is a side view of the design.
Here it is without the remotes.
-- K'NEX Nunchuk Hanger --
Here is my nunchuk hanger. I need better ideas for this.
They just hang there...
-- K'NEX Sensor Bar Stand --
I left the original stand at my parents' place in Washington.
It's a pretty nifty replacement. The colors aren't bad either!
Does anyone else have any Wii-related K'NEX inventions? I am still designing a better nunchuk storage unit.
Well, I showed my brother, we tried making the Wiimote stand, and then he decided to try a nunchuck thing. It's not quite a stable design, and not quite visable in the picture, but there's a spot where the actual nunchuck sits and then the cord wraps around the upper part of it. Your design is probably better...
Anyways, that's really cool what you managed to do with Knex. Most of the ones at my house never got used for much more then bases, weapons, and people.
OMG! that is absolutely awesome! Im gonna go fish out my Knex and make controller stands for all of my controllers for all my consols! thats soo cool. Your a very creative person I'll give you that.the problem I see with your nunchuk holder is that the nunchuks dangle. you should have a stand were the nunchuks sit atop something and the cords of the nunchucks wrap around a pole or something....
You know that crazy kid on your bus that laughs at random moments because he's thinking about something funny that happened yesterday? Yeah, that's me
That brings back some memories. I loved K'Nex when I was younger. I tried making that big ferris wheel that they would advertise in displays, but I always gave up and made some sort of car.
As for the actual topic of the thread, yeah. Good job with the accessories. Very inventive.
Used to post here regularly on the forum, but eventually moved on. For anyone wondering what happened to me, everything going just fine and I'm completely happy with everything I'm doing. There reaches a point where you gotta move on.
That's...wow. Big congrats on doing this, Buzz - that's a very good idea. It makes me wish I still had my old K'nex set to play around with, because I could really use a decent place to keep my Wii remote.
I think your problem with the nunchuk is the long cord. Wrapping it around the top part like in DD123's design keeps it out of the way, but limits the easy access (unwinding it every time you use it would be a slight pain). I'll have to think abuot this one...and see if I can find myself some K'nex.
I wonder if something similar could be done with Lego...
I never got into knex, just legos, so maybe I could do something with that...
But probably not, the majority of my legos are included within wonderful replicas of Sonic and Shadows heads, as well as a Zoid I made. I may decide to post those in here, or maybe in my website, though I am not sure whether or not I allow myself to post non-photoshopped things there. I'll have to ask myself when I get home.
We will see wot time doth bring!
