Overwatch Fan Makes D.Va Motion Controller

An Overwatch fan by the name of Medist has created his own motion controllers to play as D.Va. The motion controllers were made by wiring an Arduino Leonardo through the cases of two different controllers, which would be modeled after D.Va's pilot controls. The Arduino board would input keyboard and mouse signals to the computer, allowing Medist to map his own triggers and buttons onto his controllers as ke ...

It’s a build that relies on good woodworking practices from the ground up. Maple wood is used for the frame, cut and prepared on a mit ...

LoRa security camera using a MKR WAN 1300 base station

A new project has been published to the official Arduino blog this week providing insight into a new LoRa security camera and detection system that is capable of transmitting data when a trust parser is recognised. The system is also clever enough to ignore animals such as dogs that move into its field of view and will only trigger when it recognises a human figure. Watch the video below for a demonstration ...

The various displays and interfaces in Star Trek, especially The Original Series, were intentionally designed to be obtuse and overly complex so they would appear futuristic to the audience. If you can figure out how Sulu was able to fly the Enterprise with an array of unlabeled buttons and rocker switches, we’d love to hear it. But one area of the ship where this abstract design aesthetic was backed off a ...
