3D chat with holographic friend in virtual environment
posted December 19 2010 15:35.09 by Giorgos Lazaridis

This video became very popular! Oliver Kreylos, had managed to merge two Kinect cameras into one (we had feature it a couple of days ago). Now, he got his hack a step further. He...

Alexandre Dubus after building a fantastic tricopter, decided to keep the original chassis and add some Nintendo Wii console gyroscopes. Combined with an Arduino ProMini and a 6DOF IMU made from Nintendo Wii MotionPlus and Nunchuk.
The result is a perfect, stable flight as you can see in the video from the onboard camera that has almost no vibrations even if it is just cable staped without any vibration dampeners.
The whole documentation complete with schematics and more pics can be found here for the tricopter and here for the TriWiiCopter.

Picaxxo Beamed Canvas
posted June 28 2010 20:31.03

A few days ago we presented Gareth's work, the Picaxxo, a painting robot utilising a Wii-Mote tracking system for picking up an infrared triangle mounted to the back of a picaxe based robot.
Now an update version comes and provides more interactivity to the proje...

Gareth from Let's make robots made a painting robot utilising a Wii-Mote tracking system for picking up an infrared triangle mounted to the back of a picaxe based robot.
After you start you prefered paint application the robot takes over and creativity begins. An original idea well executed, nothing more to say than let the colours flow.
Complete project log can be found here and of course much more robots at the site.

Undulating Flux
posted May 31 2010 18:20.09

David Resnick
choose a rather complex project for his first-year project in the Arts Computation Engineering program at UC Irvine. The overall goal of Undulating Flux is to bring the participant into what psychologist Mihalyi Csikszentmihalyi termed a flow state. A flow state is described as a state of being wherein action follows upon action according to an internal logic that seems to need no consc...

Pervasive pew pew
posted May 28 2010 17:56.30

Mark Czubin and Domien Nowicki present their project for Mobile & Pervasive Computing at Hasselt University.
Mounted on the glove is an Arduino board with an accelerometer, flex sensor and infrared led, the infrared led is seen by the wiimote, and is used for tracking finger motion. The flex sensor is used for shooting and the accelerometer for reloading, last the communication between glove and laptop is done through an XBee module. I can't wait to see this with a first person shooter game.

Automatic Take Off, Tracking and Landing of a Miniature UAV on a Moving Carrier Vehicle
posted May 27 2010 14:19.57

Karl Engelbert Wenzel
, Andreas Masselli and Prof. Dr. Andreas Zell demonstrate a different visual tracking approach by using low-cost, lightweight commodity consumer hardware. As main sensor they use a Wii remote infrared (IR) camera, which allows robust tracking of a pattern of IR lights in conditions without direct sunlight. The system does not need to communicate with the ground vehicle and works with an onboard 8-bit microcontroller.This ena...

Low-Cost Multi-touch Whiteboard using the Wiimote
posted April 9 2010 16:00.31

Johnny Chung Lee is a genius guy whos curriculum vitae is enough to fill our site, one of his researches is about Wiimote and how to implement it in various applications. One of them is creating a multi-touch white board with it. Its a must to check his other projects about Wiimote.
