stm32f4-discovery art


It’s long been since I gave up any pretense of usefulness for my projects / hacks… now all my projects are “art installations”… (except when it’s something for my 5 year old son, which is always a good pretext to play around with some electronics… ๐Ÿ™‚ )

WiiMote IR Camera with Lego NXT Brick – LeJOS


This previous post talks about how to connect a IR Camera from a WiiMote to an Arduino.

There’s also this one, talking about how to connect it to the .NET micro framework, FEZ Domino board (which also has hardware details on how to extract the mentionned camera and solder it on its own little board…).

It’s therefore time I wrote a quick post, on how to interface this wonderful camera with a Lego NXT Brick, programmed in Java thanks to LeJOS !
