Car modder repurposes Wiimote as accelerometer

Car modder repurposes Wiimote as accelerometer:

Filed under: , ,

Looking to collect a little acceleration / braking data on the cheap? Even if you’re just scouting alternative uses for that oh-so-handy Wiimote, a recent project from klee just may suit your fancy. A proud owner of a 2000 Volkswagen Jetta managed to rig up a Wiimote-based tracking system that gathered information on g-forces, acceleration, turning, and overall speed, and thanks to a little Excel computation, the results are neatly graphed once the outing concludes. Of course, you may need a little help in the script writing department, by judging by the looks of things, most everything you need is awaiting you in the read link — you know, except your own Wiimote and a Vee-Dub.

[Thanks, Matt]
