The Boarduino’s small footprint made me want to see how small of a device I could whip up in an hour from some fairly complex components. So I decided to see how small the combination of a Boarduino, a Wii Nunchuck, and a hobby servo motor could be. Here’s a little video of the result.

    That is a very nice project. I’m impressed. You make it look so simple.

    Do you know if the accelerometer is sensitive enough to control a two-wheel robot platform, Segway-style? That would be so cool.

    The accelerometer is sensitive enough I think, but you’ll need faster-acting servos.
