Leveling up in “Destiny” with servo motors and an Arduino

The grind. Almost every game that has you leveling up will require you to grind at some point, requiring you to spend you precious little time fight the same enemies over and over. For Destiny this accounts for a huge amount of your playtime, but if you could get an Ardunio, say, to do it for you, it could cut out a lot of that proverbial grind.  It turns out you can.

…Yavin247 – sleeps. Then he wakes up, yawns and stretches, and goes to admire his results.

“Woke up this morning to a brand new 20!” he beamed on Reddit (via VG247). “Had about 3600 kills, and 900 deaths (LOL), and like 50 green engrams. I started at level 16.5 yesterday afternoon, and reached 20 sometime while I was asleep. With the armour I had waiting for him he is now a 26.”

Over time he’s improved his mechanisms to include a second motor – resplendent with cable-tie – that twitches the left thumbstick sporadically so he doesn’t look to the game server like a bot – how could anyone even suggest such a thing! He’s even worked in a bit of shooting to break up all the punching.
