As a school project we created this game. It´s built with an accelerometer to measure the tilt of your hand to control your character and whenever you are hit by a dislike, we have a motor that vibrates as physical feedback. Hope you like it as much as we loved building it.
This is the setup of the gaming glove you use in the game.
That's cool, man! I made a similar project recently. Check it out: Arduino & Processing - Game Controller (TUTORIAL) - YouTube
Cool! When we started with the project, before we came up with the concept of using a like hand, we thought about doing it with a rather similiar control as you did, but with a ultrasonic distance sensor instead:)
What's the servo/motor for? Vibration?
Btw, nice project
Yepp, the servo is for vibration. I know there are better motors to use for vibration, but for the this school project we were given a servo motor to use. It actually worked better for vibration than I expected.
If you have some old cellphone, or some old Play Station Joystick, you can take it from those
Well, the one from the play are too big perhaps, but the others would work perfectly
Are you "smoothing" the input reads?
Actually I am not sure if the input reads are being "smoothed" when the video was filmed(doesn't really look very smooth in the video when I look at it now). We had a tight time frame, so either the filming took place before I added smoothing or the accelerometer isn't correctly placed in the glove at the time of the filming.
I have a lot of old "crap" like old cellphones somewhere, I just might take a look and see what I can find.
This is how and old Nokia ended after some minutes in my hands.
There you can see the vibrator motor
