Timo sent me a link to his latest Arduino project. He made a wooden, buttonless, IR remote control from an Arduino and an accelerometer. I really like the idea of a remote that doesn’t have any buttons. The fact that it all fits inside a small, seamless, wooden enclosure makes it even cooler! Check out the link for more information and source code. Thanks Timo!
A couple of weeks ago while I was playing with the Wii remote I got an idea: why not to control a TV with an accelerometer-based remote, too? I made a standalone Arduino and fitted it, other components needed and a battery pack inside a wooden, remote-sized case. Making the case was a bit of pain, since I had to drill two 20mm wide, 10cm deep holes without a drill press…
