Catching Up

Today was my first day of class, I had a lot of catching up to do. The first thing I learned was that you can hack the Wii remote and connected to a computer via bluetooth and use it as a sensor to control the computer with an infrared led pen. I also looked at the guts of the Wii remote to see the different devices that make it operate.

I learned about accelerometer; which measures the acceleration forces (static and dynamic). It does this to find out the angle in which a device is (static), and the way the device moves (dynamic).

Today we started to build our own infrared led pens.
