Thanks to chiprobot from the Adafruit forums for sharing this neat project with us!
I have devised a game code named “Staroids”. The Game is by no way finished, and more will be added in time.
It was a programming exercise, to see if I could mix both a cheap TFT screen and Nintendo Nun-chuck positional controller.
I originally had it wired up to the Nintendo’s motion+ accessory, a 3 axis gyro….. however I had a ping moment when I noticed the Nunchuck had extra controls up its sleeve.
Its written using the Arduino IDE and ported to the ESP8266…. The biggest advantage is the ESP is faster that the arduino’s atmel chip, this is from my observation of the frame updates to the TFT screen.
