Nunchuck Controlled 3D cube on TV

05 Jan

This is pretty cool – I took the TVout library, the Wiichuck library and wrote a 3D library. Put them all together and got a nunchuck controlled 3D shape on TV. Movement in the nunchuck is detected by the arduino, then the cube is redrawn according to new angle of the controller.

At this point I ran out of memory but it wouldn’t be too hard to set up the shapes in FLASH instead of RAM. The hardware isn’t too complicated, just a few resistors and a pot for the speaker.

    So rad! Looking forward to the schematic or a closer photo of the circuit so I can try it myself.

    @Sam – there you go – its pretty simple really, you need a Nunchuck adapter which you can get from Cool Components in the UK , The Robot Shop in Europe or DF Robot in the US
