Accelerometer Controlled Pong


[Perry’s] awesome AcceLED Pong project gives new life to a classic game by adding acceleration-based control. The pong paddles are moved by tilting the circuit left or right. Motion is measured by an ADXL203 dual axis accelerometer, and an ATMEGA32 microcontroller converts acceleration into ball and paddle movement. The game display is a three-color SparkFun 8×8 LED matrix with serial interface.

[Perry] also used a similar setup to make a USB LED spectrum analyzer fed by the Linux XMMS media player.

  1. just because it has been done or could be done already by somebody doesn’t make it not worthwhile to do for whoever made it. the whole spirit of the diy community is doing things for FUN. whether or not it interests you is completely irrelevant.
