Hacked Nintendo Punch-Out!! Game Finally Lets You Fight Mike Tyson Using Motion Controls #WearableWednesday
If you have been waiting over 30 years to go toe to toe with 8-bit Tyson. The wait is over. Ian Charnas used Google’s MoveNet to hack himself into 1985’s Punch-Out!!! Charnas reverse engineered the source code.
For added interaction Charnas also created a wearable iot shock band from an Adafruit Feather.
