TodBot + Boarduino + Servo + Wii

I threw some pre-release toys at TodBot to play with, and he rewards with a fun little project combining a Wii accellerometer and a standard servo.

His videography quality is disturbing, and makes me look bad! Check out more about the project including a nice video, on his todbotblog.

  1. Ahahaha, “disturbing” like Twin Peaks or “disturbing” like The Shining?

  2. :)

  3. Dumb question:
    why just one servo? There is a two axis joystick an accelerometer and two buttons, so it should be possible to use it to control something (e.g. a laser, water gun etc.), right?

  4. One servo because I didn’t think to add a second. :)
