Drawing 3D Shapes with Skateboard Motions – Adalogger & VL6180X Spotted in Video | @convivialstudio

Coooooool! Spotted this video showing a monitor playing documentation footage of skateboarding tricks being turned into 3D shapes, alongside 3D-printed models of those shapes adjacent on the table; the video appears to show an Adalogger & VL6180X Time of Flight Distance sensor inside a custom enclosure attached to the trucks.

Paul from @convivial_studio says in a comment,

it’s a custom c++ app using openframeworks. I need to clean up the source code and I will share it on instructables

We look forward to seeing that code and project in the future! 🙂

OH here’s another clip we just found:

Adafruit Feather 32u4 Adalogger: At the Feather 32u4’s heart is at ATmega32u4 clocked at 8 MHz and at 3.3V logic, a chip setup we’ve had tons of experience with as it’s the same as the Flora. This chip has 32K of flash and 2K of RAM, with built in USB so not only does it have a USB-to-Serial program & debug capability built in with no need for an FTDI-like chip, it can also act like a mouse, keyboard, USB MIDI device, etc. Read more.

Adafruit VL6180X Time of Flight Distance Ranging Sensor (VL6180): The VL6180X (sometimes called the VL6180) is a Time of Flight distance sensor like no other you’ve used! The sensor contains a very tiny laser source, and a matching sensor. The VL6180X can detect the “time of flight”, or how long the laser light has taken to bounce back to the sensor. Since it uses a very narrow light source, it is good for determining distance of only the surface directly in front of it. Read more.
