    A while back I ordered the headrest mount for the Xoom from Amazon and couldn't use it. I contacted the seller and arranged to return it, but it ddn't make sense to return a 14.00 device that was gonna cost me 11.28 to ship back. I figured I'd throw it in a yard sale or find some one that could use it.

    Today I found a use for it, I have been playing a lot of N64oid on my Zoom with the wii controller app to let me use the clasic wii controller etc.

    So today I picked up a wii steering wheel, a classic controller and a wiimote so I wouldn't have to "borrow" one from the kids wii. Using my dremel and part of an old Ankon bicycle mount I was able to modify the brackets and mount my Xoom to the wii mote wheel.

    Another benefit to doing it this way is I can take the holder off of the wheel and put it on my bicycle handle bars this summer, I also included a few pics with it mounted on my bicycle. It seems to be secure but I am not 100% sure yet.

    You sir are out of control! Very impressive. And I thought I was a tinkerer.

    You really are Xooming every where you go

    No way I could trust it. My phone would be better imo.

    More work that I would personally do but looks very functional. Reminds me of my days making mame cabinets.

    I have a DX belt clip I am gonna "modify" to work in this set up as well tomorrow. I am also going to start on my vehicle mount.

    The wheel hold the Zoom great, I am just not sure about it being secure on the bicycle Possible Harley-Davidson mount to come. Not mu ch room on a set of Sportster handle bars, especially when they are buckhorns. I may have to get some 4" straight risers and some drag bars.

    Not sure yet, I am still at work, I will check it out later this evening when I get home or tomorrow morning, I am also going to have to find/buy myself an emulator and get me some Mario Bros.!

    This will be great to introduce my kids to what real old school gaming was like, no waving your hands/arms around. LOL
