Pyrofer used a uP (microprocessor) to create 3D graphics on a 128×128 LCD display. Videos after the jump.
…the end goal is a full filled 3D object that can move offscreen in some sort of Elite style dogfight. I’d love to write a whole elite game, this LCD isnt fast enough though because it uses a serial interface (rs232) to send commands
The analogue input (2 axis) allows me to move or rotate the object as required by hand and will form the basis of the end game controls. A fire button is needed
Here is the video of me controlling the cube with a 3axis (z not used yet) accelerometer. Tilting it in either x or y axis makes the cube move that way. Next is the z axis, but its kinda hard to “tilt” the thing in the z axis
Here is the video of the controller doing rotation instead of location. Its pretty trippy watching the cube mirror your control of the physical object
Ok, Was bored with a cube, so made an Elite Spaceship
