Engineering a Paintbrush Made of Light: Day 2 (Morning)
As a quick overview of yesterday, we learned about how a wiimote determines its spatial location and sends the information via bluetooth in the form of variables. Today, we are going to be making and soldering an IR light “pen” to use our wiimote with. After that, we are going to be working with P5 and getting a general overview of coding. I’m looking forward to this, because I’ve always wanted to know how people like Johnny Lee make their programs compatible with wiimotes. I want to be able to take the data the wiimote is sending via bluetooth and do something useful with it. It’s a very interesting concept to me, and I hope to learn more about it through the week.
