Hi,

First i want to introduce myself. I am electrical engineering student from turkey and also a blogger. I share my project from my blog (Click For My Blog)and until now i will share a few of them from instructables.

At this project, visualization of android device with IMU sensors will be explained.The orientation of an android device will be shown at PC. Android camera and PC communicate with each other with a WI- FI connection. I wrote 2 program for this project. First one is android app Second one is visualizer program for PC. At android app IMU angles of the Android phone are sent to PC by using UDP network protocol. After you install the app write your PC's IP to this program. Also you can change the using port.

PC program is written in Processing 2. Program firstly take the IMU angles from android phone over wifi connection. Then update the 3 dimensional shape on the screen by this data. To use my processing code Processing UDP library must be downloaded.

Step 1: Things to Do
