So I went to the store, and they had a bin of "90% off, we throw it out tommorow" in which they had these wii-like game things, each had two hand wands and a usb base station, I took one home ...

Juicy! Each box contained 3x  2.4Ghz transciever radios, 2x 3 axis accelerometers, and 2x capacitive keyboard controllers.
As they were selling for about $2.50 ea, I rushed back and bought all the rest of them.

what do I do with 33 2.4G radios, 22 accelerometers?  army of balancing robots?
