This project uses the Arduino 101, a battery, and an LED strip to make a gesture-controlled Wizard’s Walking Staff. We’ll define three different light-display “spells” you can summon by moving the staff in one of three gestures.
The code uses the Inertial Measurement Unit in the Arduino 101 to read G-forces, but does not use the Pattern Matching Engine (for an example using the PME, check out Kitty Yeung’s PME project.) Instead, this code counts quick impulses in the X, Y, and Z directions and summons spells when you perform a certain combination in a short time.
Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit! We’re bringing you the blinkiest, most fashionable, innovative, and useful wearables from around the web and in our own original projects featuring our wearable Arduino-compatible platform, FLORA. Be sure to post up your wearables projects in the forums or send us a link and you might be featured here on Wearable Wednesday!
