As I have mentioned before I love my Wii. So last night an idea struck me, wouldn't it be great to be able to put an image of your Mii on a T-shirt? I even thought that there may be a market for this shirt.
The engineer in me immediately started to work on how it would be possible. First I would need to find a way to download the Mii from the Wii which can be accomplished by using the Wiimote Data Management Library. Then I would need to reverse engineer the structure of the Mii data which has already been done. Figure out a way to export this data as a JPEG file which is where the on-line Mii Editor would come in handy. Finally, upload the image to CafePress to order a shirt.
Now as I said I was doing this all late at night so when I told my wife the idea this morning she thought it was great but asked, "Has anyone else done it before?" To which a quick Google search turned up offerings from Mr. Cloud and MiiWare. Great, now my life is a plot point from the movie Knocked Up which Kate and I both thought was hilarious by the way.
So the moral of this story boys and girls is next time you think you have a great idea for an internet business focus less on the how and more on the should.
