WAV3BOT is an Arduino-bot Controlled by a MPU-6050 Accelerometer on a Hand Controller
WAV3BOT is a simple Arduino-bot built with a L298N motor driver and MPU-6050 accelerometer – the body of the ‘bot is built with not much more than a square of cardboard & hot glue. Breadboards are used to expedite the prototyping process – even on the hand controller! This is about as simple as it gets, and yet there’s still plenty of room to expand upon and further customize your own WAV3BOT! A step-by-step tutorial is available here on Instructables and all the code is here on GitHub.
Here’s the clip of Vignesh demonstrating the ‘bot live on Show & Tell recently:
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
