Painting with LEDs and a wiimote

The contraption

leave a comment »

The Liight Brush is made of 5 main parts :
– the RGB LEDs, bright and shiny
– the wiimote sensor bar, which is basically two infrared LEDs on top of the RGB ones
– the wiimote itself, detecting the position of the sensor bar
– the computer, getting the input from the wiimote, and computing which colors should the LEDs display (a bit of C# using the wiimotelib)
– an Arduino Mega with a serial link to the computer to control the LEDs

The design and Arduino codes are fairly simple, do not hesitate to ask if you want the details to build one of your own!
