Our new Arduino projects contributor, Riley Porter, has posted another cool project to our Make: Arduino page. In the project, he shows you how to hook up a Wii MotionPlus motion capture device to your Arduino to easily get 3-axis gyroscopic data onto the Arduino platform. You can use this set-up to control up to three servos, create a cheap inertia measurement unit (IMU) for a quad copter, and many other motion-control applications.

Thanks to the fine folks at element14 for sponsorship of the Make: Arduino page and this project.
