Pervasive pew pew
posted May 28 2010 17:56.30

Mark Czubin and Domien Nowicki present their project for Mobile & Pervasive Computing at Hasselt University.
Mounted on the glove is an Arduino board with an accelerometer, flex sensor and infrared led, the infrared led is seen by the wiimote, and is used for tracking finger motion. The flex sensor is used for shooting and the accelerometer for reloading, last the communication between glove and laptop is done through an XBee module. I can't wait to see this with a first person shooter game.

Automatic Take Off, Tracking and Landing of a Miniature UAV on a Moving Carrier Vehicle
posted May 27 2010 14:19.57

Karl Engelbert Wenzel
, Andreas Masselli and Prof. Dr. Andreas Zell demonstrate a different visual tracking approach by using low-cost, lightweight commodity consumer hardware. As main sensor they use a Wii remote infrared (IR) camera, which allows robust tracking of a pattern of IR lights in conditions without direct sunlight. The system does not need to communicate with the ground vehicle and works with an onboard 8-bit microcontroller.This ena...

Smart Blocks
posted May 19 2010 21:40.33

Shenwei Liu & Hang Li made these smart blocks for their INFO4320 Final Project. Blocks are 3D printed boxes filled with accelerometeters, wireless cards, microcontrollers and IR sensors that can sense one the other, communicate, control each other and respond to hand gestures. They can act as photo frames, memo pads, share the same canvas and communicate with real time update to create a simple game for two. Watch the video for all appications of this excellent project.

Rock Paper Scissors Playing Glove
posted May 14 2010 15:52.15

Steve Hoefer made a glove that plays along with you the known game. Not only that but it learns your way of playing over time and counters your moves. Consists of a arduino, an accelerometer, flex sensors for finger bend recognition, a diy screen, some leds and of course the glove. Details of construction along with the needed info can be found here.

Microcontroller video game system (HQ)
posted May 14 2010 15:37.58

Luis Cruz from Honduras builded a video game system using 4 microcontrollers. One for the wireless controller (an atmega168), one for video, one for monophonic sound, and the last one that receives the information remotely from the IR LED in the controller. Yes, he also builded an IR contro...

USB Wireless Tilt Mouse + Minesweeper
posted May 14 2010 15:27.18

Skyler Schneider and Jack Ellsworth demonstrate their spring 2010 Cornell University ECE 4760 group project. The idea was a handheld mouse device that measures its tilt and then wirelessly transmits the data to a base unit, which is connected to a PC through a USB cable and can be recognized by certain mo...
