    Johnny Lee’s ability to transform a Wii remote into a highly useable piece of equipment for teacher’s and schools is wonderful. He has figured out a way for schools to save money in their budgets, and still be able to utilize technology in their classroom. For school districts that have very little money to spend on technology, teachers could afford to pay for this on their own, and students can take advantage of modern technology. I have forwarded this onto many teachers over the past week, and have received many thank you’s. This is something that can be done for very little money.
