Wii Balance Board controlled Labyrinth Game

Jestin Stoffel and Vince Thompson of the CCCKC have created a cool Wii Balance Board controlled Labyrinth Game which uses an Arduino microcontroller to handle some of the interface.

"Currently the game is using two servos and an Arduino to turn the knobs that move the game surface. I bought my Labyrinth game at a Tuesday Morning store for less than $10. The servos were about $10 each and my Arduino cost around $30. I often use the AdaFruit BoArduinos in the robotics workshops I teach which cost $17.50 so that could reduce the overall cost to build this project."

    LOL, I remember these being tough with using your hands. I can’t imagine using your body on the Wii balance board. Very cool though!

    I love the idea. Probably one of the better wii hacks so far. I wish I could see it in action
    but like most of the stuff by the time I get to it… The YouTube video is no longer available.

    I miss out on so many vids :(. Well CCCKC guys… keep up the interestingly good work.

    Hi Zkel,

    I would suggest a kit that is designed to work if you are at the early learning stage. It will be much easier and less frustrating working towards your goal.

    Here is a line following robot kit from Parallax

    It is designed for this robot:

    It is a bit of money but there are many things you can learn from this platform since it will not just be a line following robot.

    This page also has a good explanation of how a basic line following robot works:

    i’m currently working on a similar idea, scaled up to 6-by-6 ft.

    the interesting part is that the Wii-BB-controlled-labyrinth idea just hit me one day, and i thought i was really original, till i found this post…

    since i’m not much of a software person (i’m more into assembler-hardware-welding-carpentry stuff) i wonder if i can put my hands on the Wii balance board interface program, instead of trying to find an expert, or even worse – have to learn it by myself.

    cheers,

    GK
