Some Airsoft Turret play

Been toying with the idea of making an Airsoft Gun controller wirelessly via Wii Remote.  Inspired by a previous DefconBots challenge.  Just managed to get control of 2 servos via a ATMega8, serial link to a PC and a Wii Remote talking to said PC via BlueTooth.  Pretty hacky but it works, and it’s way easier than grokking BlueTooth on the MCU for now.

First video is of 1 servo working with really jittery input.

Second video is 2 servos on X and Y axis with smoothed input.  Much nicer.

Using libwiimote on the host side for Wii Remote interfacing.
