NEW PRODUCT – Nunchucky (Wii Nunchuck breakout adapter). The Wii Nunchuck has proven to be an excellent bargain – switches, joystick, and accelerometer in one handy package!
But it’s a shame to hack off the connector to make use of it, so use the Solarbotics Nunchucky breakout board adapter!
The Nunchucky features:
- Two sets of interface pads
- Includes both 4 Pin male header
- Lock notches so your Nunchuck “clicks” in and won’t let loose!
- Tie-down Holes for securing ribbon-cable extensions
Pairs perfectly with our Wii Nunchuck controller You’ll need a microcontroller with i2c port, there is lots of example code online, we like this Arduino sketch.
NEW PRODUCT – Wii controller (Nunchuck / Wiichuck). This is a generic Wii Nunchuck controller, we haven’t tried it with a Wii but it does work great with the Video Game shield, and all the microcontroller code we tried. There’s a 3-axis accelerometer inside as well as a resistive 2-axis joystick and two buttons. You can grab the data over two i2c data lines. There’s tons of example code for all sorts of microcontrollers for these guys!
