I've just got my accelerometer working, but I'm not quite sure what to do with it now. Does anyone have any ideas as to what'd be a cool project?
trot line alarm!
Err, whats' that?
A heavy duty finshing line mostly secured to jugs used to fish for catfish.
That way when a big fish comes you can have a siren on the bank to let you know you have a big one!
First thing i did with mine was to mount it on a breadboard with the arduino and make a simple app in processing that mimicked the physical movement of the breadboard with a 3d image on screen.
Ok, that wasn't the first thing. The first thing was an app that just streamed the readings back to my pc followed quickly by a feature that streamed readings and complained if it detected being turned upside down.
I played with that puppy off and on for weeks - have fun!
