iPhone displays Wiimote Position

This is an impressive example of what some creative programming can be done with the iPhone.


“The video first shows the iPhone’s AirPlane mode activated before starting an OpenGL-ES Demo. In the demo, the orientation of the virtual WiiMote is controlled by a physical WiiMote over a Bluetooth connection.”

This iPhone laser display is real cool, not very practical but who cares about that. 🙂



iPhone Controlled R2D2 Robot

Looks like the iPhone makes for a great R2D2 robot controller. It’s cool to see the new iPhone technology interface and control a robot that we remember from our past. Nice to see the endeavor pay off with the robots first steps. 🙂

“I found a way to remote control my R2D2 with an iPhone. In the videos I demonstrate controlling a servo and the dome motor using an iPhone using the accelerometer (tilting the iPhone controls it) and using a slider control on the touch screen. Other touch screen controls are possible too such as rotary controls, buttons, XY controls, and multitouch as well as gestures. I should be able to interface with my J.E.D.I display as well and type in text messages in the iPhone that will scroll across the front or rear logic displays.”

Talk about a wired car and guess what controls the works? You got it, an iPhone!

“Quick demo of accessing a web server linked to an Arduino in my RX-8 from an iPod Touch so it can be started, stopped, locked/unlocked, current location shown on Google Maps, and engine parameters displayed.”

iPhone DIY Macro Lens

Colin Devroe made a cool Macro Lens for his iPhone from an old camera lens. All us geeks have tons of broken gadgets that may come in handy some day. This hack shows us that broken gadgets can be useful after all.

“A few years ago one of my digital cameras just decided it didn’t want to work anymore. It wouldn’t turn on. Actually, to be more accurate, the thing wouldn’t turn off. Turns out that there was a small screw inside that busted up the innards. No idea how that happened.

Well, like any self respecting geek I kept the camera’s body around for a few years always thinking I’d do something with it eventually. You know, the same way car enthusiasts keep around old Corvette parts thinking one day they’ll rebuild those. That’s me with electronics – only, I’m horrible at rebuilding things, but fantastic at ripping them apart.

I figured that inside of this extraordinarily complex device I would surely find some way to manipulate the way the iPhone took photos. Turns out, I ended up with a fairly decent macro lens for the iPhone.”
