Multiple movement sensors and a Raspberry Pi can bring a virtual reality game character to life

Jean Perardel has taken several Arduino Fio boards, 6-Degrees-of-Free sensors and a Wii Nunchuck and attached them to his body to detect movement and orientation. The signals are received by an Arduino Micro and a Raspberry Pi is then used to interpret the incoming data and produce a gamified virtual reality representation of the movement which it outputs over HDMI. You can read more over on Hackaday.io and see how one sensor affects the game character in the GIF below:

  1. Very interesting, and this could be applied to a much more useful projects.
    This sensor project will be the basis for my further experimentation..

    • I like how they’re using multiple sensors in small packages – makes it much more likely to be wearable.
