 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

A friend of mine just started a Podcast about Arduino hacks. Showing what they've done and how they did it.. Take a look at the teaser showing a RC Car controlled by a wii balance board, a wii gyro controller and the touch interface of an iPhone. All done by Arduino and 50 lines of ruby code. Pretty funny watching him ride the RC Car with the balance board ;-)

the teaser: http://hardcode.tv

I agree, code would be great but an Instructable would be better  ;D

Hi there.

Just came across the same project an I am deeply interested in building it. Did anyone find out how to do it, or found a similar instructable? Please post a link!

Those 50 lines of code i would like to see  smiley

EDIT:
Actually i would like to see the Arduino code... i never got my Arduino working to generate a nice PPM stream while being able to update the Channels via Serial connection to the PC.

Do those guys have a webpage with code? The show on the Podcast looks good, but i would say: Show Soure Code or it did never happened  smiley-wink
