Trying to do a project for a class using the Arduino Uno, a Genesis controller, and a Wii Nunchuck?

Trying to do a project for a class using the Arduino Uno, a Genesis controller, and a Wii Nunchuck. Full info can be found here:,60245.0.html Unfortunately my lack of coding skills have proven to act as a pretty massive roadblock in getting any further. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Right now my main concern is just getting the Genesis controller to work with the Arduino, if I can just get that far I can probably figure out the rest by myself (and there are other classmates working on Wii nunchuck projects as well that I'm working with so once we've got their projects figured out I can probably apply simular, if not the same, solution to my project.)

Small wireless module, would you buy it? Answered

Hello fellow instructablees! I recently found a cheap product carrying a sender - receiver pair of an Xbee-like module. They transmit on the 2.4gHz range and have a range of 10m.  Would it be smart for me to buy the whole stock of these devices and sell them? would you buy it from me and for how much? Thanks EDIT: Just found some extra info on the back of the board. the wireless module has the following pins: -GND -IRQ -MISO -MOSI -SCLK -CS -CE -VCC -OSCO -OSCI perhaps that could make it more usable? The module is from a wii-nunchuck transmitter - receiver pair

Wii Remote Ports - What can they be used for?

So since the Switch is the main Nintendo console and the Wii sold like wildfire, I recently had a thought for a project involving the plug and sockets for Wii Remotes and the things you can plug into them. Seeing as how Nintendo is all about unique ports for handheld and home consoles, why not remove the ports from a Wii Remote and Nunchuck for use in say (something easy to try) a storage device, like a specialized USB or something? Based on the Wii Remote i took apart, the port is only 6 pins, and you can get both parts of the port with a Wii Motion Plus. I imagine the price for either is lowered quite a bit at used game & movie stores, so what do you guys think could be made with the ports?

K'nex Challenge for Wii Owners

Alright, I had a nice idea. I notice there are few Wii Zapper peripherals that are easy to use. Most are cheap pieces of plastic that cost much more than they need to and they still suck. There was one though that looked promising but still wasn't quite that comfortable. Here's the challenge. Make the easiest to use zapper body construction for a Wii remote and nunchuck. Some ideas are: Add a stock. Maybe some sort of stand you can rest the gun on to make aiming even easier? Add K'nex levers and buttons that press the Wii controller buttons. Make a trigger that presses the Z button and make a fake charging handle that presses the C button maybe? Tilt the remote sideways so it's easier to reach all the top buttons. Remember, comfort and ease of use. Those are important. It'd also be nice if it looked decent. Think any of you can handle it?

Why can't I compile the following Arduino code? Answered

This always stops at: nunchuck_get_data(); and the error on the bottom says: 'nunchuck_get_data' was not declared in this scope.  I do not understand that message.  I got the code from Arduino Cook Book Edition 2 and I have the Arduino Uno.  It's so discouraging some times.  I am trying to get going on this stuff and I can't seem to get a lot of code to work; Here is the code fornd on page 131-132 of the book: /* * WiichuckSerial * Uses Nunchuck Library discussed in recipe 16.5 * sends comma-seperated values for data * Label string separated by commas can be used by receiving program * to identify fields */ #include #include "Nunchuck.h" // values to add to the sensor to get zero reading when centered int offsetX, offsetY, offsetZ; #include #include "Nunchuck.h" void setup() {   Serial.begin(57600);   nunchuckSetPowerpins();   nunchuckInit(); // send the intitialization handshake   nunchuckRead; // ignore the first time   delay(50); } void loop() {   nunchuckRead();   delay(6);   nunchuck_get_data();   boolean btnC = nunchuckGetValue(wii_btnC);   boolean btnZ = nunchuckGetValue(wii_btnZ);     if(btnC) {     offsetX = 127 nunchuckGetValue(wii_accelX);     offsetY = 127 nunchuckGetValue(wii_accelY);   }   Serial.print("Data,");   printAccel(nunchuckGetValue(wii_accelX),offsetX;   printAccel(nunchuckGetValue(wii_accelY),offsetY;   printButton(nunchuckGetValue(wii_btnZ));     Serial.println(); } void printAccel(int value,int offset) {   Serial.print(adjReading(value, 127-50, 127+50, offset));   Serial.print(","); } void printJoy(int value) {   Serial.print(adjReading(value,0, 255, 0));   Serial.print(","); } void printButton(int value) {   if( value != 0)      value = 127;   Serial.print(value,DEC);   Serial.print(","); } int adjReading( int value, int min, int max, int offset) {   value = constrain(value + offset, min, max);   value = map(value, min, max, -127, 127);   return value; }

K'Nex Guns Need To Move On!

Alright, someone needs to say this so i will. Knex guns are stuck in this sort of, generic handguns, average assault rifles, shotguns with nothing new. We all need to rack our brains and come up with some concepts, then post them. So we can all have a crack at a what would be considered "HARD" concept. We need to be trying new ideas. We're stuck in a dark age of nothing new (only rarely something good might come out) we need to step forward . Basically, I'd much rather see some pics of a failed concept and what you were trying to acheive than, "Removable Mag Handgun" or "M8AR (MegaMetal8's Assault Rifle)" which is just a generic removable mag gun. I Say one of us with quite alot of subs needs to make a ible/forum where EVERYONE has access and can post concepts. Its just getting boring with all this, so for more fun and ideas. Together, LETS DO THIS! Thankyou for reading and together we can make this happen. -MM8

Intel® IoT Invitational

**UPDATES!!** 12/18/15  Thank you so much TO ALL OF YOU for your patience during this process, it means the world to us that everyone has participated in this Invitational. Everyone has worked so hard on their IoT projects, and we have enjoyed all the stories about bringing these creations to fruition. <3 After a long wait, we are finally sharing the finalists with the Instructables Community. Hoping to announce winners Monday or Tuesday! 12/1/15 Hey guys, Just wanted to update everyone as to what is going on with finalist selection and announcing winners. You guys have been so patient in this process, and we are so proud of every project the community has shared using their Intel IoT Edison development kit. The Intel Team is still reviewing projects and code, and will hopefully have their ultimate finalist selection done soon. It has been so hard choosing projects to be considered for the awards as they are all so wonderful! Again, thanks for your patience, and feel free to reach out to if you have additional questions. -Audrey 8/17/15 Hey guys! I am so excited to finally set launch dates for the Intel IoT Contest!!! We have a few more packages waiting to be received by Instructables Authors, but then we are good to go. To have your project considered for some of the AMAZING PRIZES just publish your Instructable that includes an Intel Edison between 8/31 and 10/26 and add it to the Intel IoT Invitational Contest Page. With all of our logistics and shipping pretty much wrapped, we are finally getting to review all the project ideas from people who already have Edisons and Galileos submit - you will soon get an email from myself, or Penolopy Bulnick (who is coming back to Instructables to help with future giveaways like this!), approving your idea. I have to say, I am so proud to be apart of such a wonderful community that has been understanding of our delays, and collaborative in helping one another troubleshoot their projects. I can't wait to see what everyone is going to make :) Beaming! -Audrey _________ Here at Instructables, we’re so excited to have a continued partnership with the Intel® IoT Developer Program to celebrate the bright ideas that the community has come up with for the Intel® Edison platform. We’ve been sharing some of the best IoT stories on our site, and are astounded by the growth and creativity blossoming from the Intel Edison Ecosystem. To further encourage great IoT projects being shared to Instructables, we are offering even more Intel® Edison Boards and Intel® IoT Developer Kits to you! We believe in your awesome creative potential, and your devotion to share what you make and learn with other makers and tinkerers. Furthermore, we are so excited to announce the Intel® IoT Invitational!  Intel IoT Projects published from June 8 - August 7, 2015 will be considered to win a Canon 7D mk ii, a Sony Action Cam, an Oscillisoscope, a Sparkfun Giftcard, a Shapeways Giftcard, and More!! WE ARE SEEDING THE INSTRUCTABLES COMMUNITY 300 INTEL® EDISON BOARDS and SPECIALTY INTEL® IoT DEVELOPMENT KITS.  We want to hear what you want to make with the Intel Edison Board. If we like your idea, we will send you a kit! Keep in mind, the kits we are creating during this Invitational differ from the commercially available Grove Starter Kits. It will likely take additional components and ingenuity to make great IoT projects for the Intel IoT Invitational. These are the kits and bundles we are making: Home Automation Kit This kit is designed with home automation and safety in mind. There are 9 sensors in the kit that can detect things like moisture, temperature, flames and gases. There’s also a speaker to sound alerts and a relay to turn something on or off. This kit could easily be extended with additional sensors for the ultimate home automation or safety sensor array. Included in this kit: Grove Air quality sensor Grove Encoder Grove Flame Sensor Grove Gas Sensor(MQ2) Grove Infrared Temperature Sensor Grove Moisture Sensor Grove SPDT Relay(30A) Grove Speaker   Environmental & Agriculture This kit is designed with agriculture in mind.  The 7 sensors in this kit can help you determine light, UV and dust in the environment and based on that information one could rinse a plant off with the water pump and/or water the plant and not waste any water because a flow sensor is included. There is an LED bar for visual output and a dry reed relay to turn things on and off. Included in this Kit: 6V Mini Water Pump G14 Water Flow Sensor Grove Digital Light Sensor Grove Dry-Reed Relay Grove Dust Sensor Grove Gas Sensor(MQ5) Grove LED Bar Grove Moisture Sensor Grove UV Sensor Grove Water Sensor Transportation and Safety This kit is designed with vehicle safety in mind. These 6 sensors can help you keep from getting lost, tell you if you have pulled forward far enough in the garage and even keep your garage from accidentally closing on you. In addition there is an alcohol sensor to determine if you have had too much fun. Included in this Kit: Grove Alcohol Sensor Grove GPS Grove I2C Touch Sensor Grove Infrared Reflective Sensor Grove IR Distance Interrupter Grove PIR Motion Sensor Robotics Create the next robot overlord or at the very least a cool vehicle. This kit has 2 motor drivers and 4 planet geared motors—you supply a chassis.  There are also a few items to determine distance and track a line.  This kit will likely require the most additional items from the maker, but it also provides some useful pieces to get started exploring robotics. Have other ideas—maybe a quad-copter we are eager to see what you create! Included in this Kit: Grove 3-Axis Digital Compass Grove Hall Sensor Grove I2C Motor Driver Grove IR Distance Interrupter Grove Line Finder Grove MOSFET Grove Nunchuck Grove Single Axis Analog Gyro Grove Thumb Joystick Grove Voltage Divider Planet Geared Motor F280 By no means are you limited to just using the parts in these kits, they are just meant to help you get started. Add more sensors, components, and hardware to make the IoT machines of your dreams! This product offering is limited to 300 people who state their case as to why we should send them a board and development kit. USE THIS FORM TO APPLY TO THIS PRODUCT OFFERING This application will close May 25, 2015. ____ Already have an Intel® Edison board from our last promotion? Recently participated in an Intel® IoT Roadshow? Or did you buy your own Intel® Edison kit? You can participate without receiving a board from us, sign up here!   This application will close July 20, 2015.
