nunchuck drawing

This was a project for the Fundamentals of Physical Computing graduate class with the goal of bringing code and drawing together into an interactive experience. 

Drawing made with the Wii Nunchuck drawing tool.

Project overview

Working with my partner Meghana Khandekar, we created a digital drawing program with Wii Nunchucks.  The program we created allows the user to draw with the Nunchuck choosing between 3 different brush styles. They are able to save their drawing which automatically uploads to a Tumblr gallery of completed drawings. This project involved Arduino, the Arduino Teensy, Processing, laser cutting, soldering and other processes.

The first drawing image was made by Zach Lieberman who took a few minutes to test out our device in the studio. We were very honored to have his input.
