Some time ago I connected the acceleration sensors of the HTC and Wii remote (and check this blogpost too for explanation). The next step was to send this acceleration data to my electronic speed controllers and outrunner motors. Floor and me went testing the system yesterday, watch the result below. I’m very proud of this.
So check out the photogallery and the video below. Also decided to attach an earlier sketch of the system, although it’s kind of a wild sketch, I think this explains what I did and how it works.
I’ve received some great tweets this week. I got some great input! Thank you all for that.
This weekend we will be testing the turnigy motors with the HTC module. Check my Youtube channel later this weekend for new material.
I also got this nice surprise mail by a nice girl called Floor! She’s writing her psychology master on dreams, and how people act on that. Great stuff! Because i’m actually working on making a dream come true. She wants to interview me and help a little.
With the extra helping hands the hard work will fly!
