Jonathan Robson has found great synergy between LEGO, Star Wars, Nintendo Wii and the Arduino development platform. The result of this is his LEGO turret controlled by a Nintendo Wii nunchuck. Although such a project will amaze onlookers, it's quite easy to make and can be completed in a lazy afternoon. For a demonstration watch the following video:
Even if you're not interested in making a turret, it's a great demonstration on how to use the nunchuck controller and interpret the commands coming from it. So to get started check out Jonathan's instructions page here. And we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.
When creating more complex circuitry to work with an Arduino-compatible project - consider our range of ProtoShields. From the tiny LeoStick to the Mega range, we offer a complete range for you to work with.
