Laser Distancing Probe using WiiMote - Brought to you by Rare Swiss Cow Productions
Following on from a post here "LoMoR Blog"
I have at long last started work on a Laser Distancing Probe using a WiiMote.
Basically i have equiped two Servos with simple Lasers and strapped it to a WiiMote.
I can alter the angle of the two laser beams (they can be fixed at one angle .....but where is the fun in that)
errrr - i also worked out that you actually only need one Laser (but again two is more fun)
The laser shoots out two beams of bright light which hits the wall --- here comes the cool part .....the WiiMote is able to see the brightspots - and works out how far apart they are ....... by simple triangulation you can workout the distance to wall.
