I found this while looking for a teardown of a Wii Nunchuck remote since they’re cheap and include a 3 axis accelerometer. I mentioned an interface board the other day, but the responsiveness of the interface in this video grabbed my attention. If you like it, you should check out this [via] Nunchuck Arduino RF controlled robot. You can find details on that bot here. The accelerometer itself only runs about $10, but it’s a pretty small SMD part.

Nice, i love how well it responds. I’m gonna have to try this out.
this looks like it would be great for implementation on a full scale camera crane. I was thinking about building one after being seeing this http://tinyurl.com/2sj3hx and now i’m really inspired to think bigger.
This is too cool. Now we need to program the buttons :-Ã
This is what I was thinking when I saw the giant sword holding industrial robot. But it was only running motion scripts from gestures. This project is really what I was waiting for.
Now all I need to do is buy one of these little cameras and put it on my RC truck. Mmm… Nitro fumes.
Where the hell are all the cool mods for the sixaxis?
Yea, crash has a good point, where are all the sixaxis controller hacks?
btw, awesome responsiveness! I cant get my head around the fact that it stops at the right moment even if it starts well.
SON OF A BITCH!
I just started a project exactly like this for my ECE362 class. Oh well. :( Here’s to not being first.
very nice. i wonder how responsive it would be when connected over the internet? you know, in case you wanted a home security system with a more “hands-on” approach.
hmm… the nunchuck doesn’t seem to be plugged in… (Unlikely. I doubt someone would try to choreograph that. =P)
or those ultrathin yellow wires connect it. (Probably)
Very cool, nonetheless.
I’m the author of the video.
