Nunchuck Labyrinth Game Project

Now I know how to read data from the Wii Nunchuck, I thought I would try a (hopefully) simpler project that uses the X,Y control.

Labyrinth Game
I've already got one servo beng steered by the nunchuck, so why not two? I could use two servos to twist the knobs of a Labyrinth game - or at least, I hope I can. I need to check the Labyrinth knobs don't need too much force.
  1. Fix a pair of servos to the knobs of a Labyrinth game.
  2. Test the servo movements with my RC servo controller.
  3. Link both servos to Arduino Uno with Wii Nunchuck connected.
  4. Code so that moving the nunchuck rotates the servos.

Ta daa!

Now the really exciting bit.

It turns out that a Wii Balance board can also be read by an Arduino with a Bluetooth connection. So step 5 would be to control the Labyrinth by Wii Fit board.

I definitely don't now how to do that yet. But it sounds promising.
