Arduino + Wii Nunchuck + Servos


[Yezzer] has posted a video of a cool little project he’s working on. He has interfaced the Arduino and the Wii Nunchuck to control some servos. He mounted a standard USB webcam on it for good measure. There isn’t a whole lot of information, but he does include a few links to code he modified for the project. The movement is quite natural looking and seems like it would be a cheap way to get some good animatronic controls started. This might actually be a great way to control a robot for the Crabfu challenge, if they ever have another one.

Update: As [dokument] points out in the comments below, it looks like we’ve seen a set up that could be almost identical in the past.

  1. I have that same bread board with a StickDuino on it with a almost similar project. Only difference is the nunchuck data is used to make MIDI and help me make music.
    C button = note 1
    Z button = note 2
    X axis determines what note 1 is
    y axis determines what note 2 is
    Z axis can be used to to define the modulation
    joy stick has different effects. chords based on note 1 and 2
    Lots of fun to use with Reason to make trance

  2. Hey guys. Have you heard there is a product out now which allows you to unlock your wii so that you can play dvds, backups and other system games? Its legitamate and it doesn’t risk your wii warranty. It is just a set of instructions to follow. I set mine up in 7 minutes and spent the afternoon playing old school Sega games with mates on it. The link I was given was:
    There are even testimonials for the skeptics.
