WiiModels were pretty much dead on. :)

So of course, the person crazy enough to attempt actual sized models of the Wii shortly after E3 would get a Wii at launch, and then I thought to see how my models compared.

I had not seen any accurate Wii dimension measurements at the time I built these models, so I said “OK, the disc is 12cm, I’ll use that to figure out the size of the front of the system, and then rescale the patent drawings to match what I find, and use those measurements to make my models.

A lot of people thought my models wouldn’t be accurate, and I got the typical, “It’s not right because Nintendo hasn’t released official measurements!” or something along those lines. Well, here are some pics of my new Wii and my WiiModels made several months ago:

it’s wild to think we came from this model to the current specs for the Switch… it’s almost like we are taking a step back in creativity (lack of motion controls, etc) but a step forward in third-party configs… oh well here’s to change!
