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? :P
PS: before someone asks :) I've tried to contact Georg Reil to have some more information, but unfortunately I had no reply.
