Hi to all,
I'm studying in detail this project, I would like to experiment a bit and try out some other ideas:
After some research, I think to reproduce a similar object someone would need:
- an IR mouse to detect translation;
- an accelerometer form a Nunchuck to be used as a tilt sensor;
- a simple switch to detect "clicks";
- Arduino to manage them all...
The problem comes with graphics
! I think data coming from Arduino sensors is sent to a PC via USB serial communication, then Processing elaborates and sends back a video signal to the LCD screen. How could you do that? (with a relatively inexpensive technology)
I've seen hacks of PsOne LCD and I noticed from the shape and size of the device that it's something they might have employed. What do you think? Any other possible solution?
PS: before someone asks
I've tried to contact Georg Reil to have some more information, but unfortunately I had no reply.
