Fun, educational to build, and a bit like magic. Check this video of the DIY 3D tilt sensor hooked up to Philips Hue. The project is designed to be made in a FabLab (Zürich represent!) with a laser cutter, a 3D printer and a soldering iron. Because the project is based on Adafruit’s Bluefruit EZ-Key, no programming is required.
