After finding existing sketches that used the Nintendo Wii nunchuck as a user interface, and finding them incompatible with the current Arduino IDE v1.0.2, Instructables user "animes25" has published an easy-to-follow sketch and instruction on how to read the values from the nunchuck and interpret them with the Arduino. Their example uses six LEDs to illustrate the axis that the nunchuck is being held to. And thus you can learn how to integrate the controller into your own projects.
When experimenting with various items and an Arduino, it can be difficult and time consuming to mess about connecting wires of various sizes to the board. As you can see the coffee machine hacker has chosen our Freetronics Terminal Shield for Arduino - which neatly solved the problem:
Apart from having a larger than normal prototyping area, there are terminal blocks for every Arduino pin, three LEDs for general use and a reset button on the shield. Great for experimenting and fast I/O connections - so order yours today.
