Wii nunchuck controlled servo bot

[Stuart.Mcfarlan] is back. This time he has added Wii Nunchuck control to his servo bot. You may recall servo bot, or SERB, from a few weeks ago. Now the little bot can be controlled by either the joystick, or the gyroscope in the Nunchuck. Too bad its wired though, wireless is the next step right?

    this isn’t a ‘bot’, it is a remote controlled vehicle. It isn’t autonomous in any way that I can see. Really cool hack though…so i guess the nunchuck controller really does have a good use.

    Get yer bluetooth out init!

    Why not just use a wireless nunchuck controller?

  4. maya angelou says:

    You could just use a an adapter to make the nunchuck wireless. They’re battery powered and only cost $15-20 at Gamestop or wherever.

    nyko also makes good wireless nunchuks – nyko’s really stepped it up with their wii perphs.

    awesome. it’s amazing how good the accelerometers in the nunchuck are, especially for a $20 device. i wish there were more wii games out there that fully used the nunchuck’s motion sensing abilities.

    I did a project for school last spring that used a pic to read the nunchuck data and send wirelessly to another pic to control a robot. Check out linx technologies rf products, very easy to use. Ill see if I can upload the project presentation files and pictures to a server so I post a link to the info.

    a lot easier than blue tooth and cheaper too is to get a wireless nunchuk. They cost like $13-$25 and have about the same range. you could probably even hack it for farther range.
