So, I was wandering around the web and came upon an interesting story over at Robots w/Laserswww.wiili.org. Very interesting stuff in there, including the math and such to convert the linear forces on the accelerometer into the rotational ones, something I know a lot of people out there were interested in.
Anyway, I was thinking it would be pretty cool to use that as remote for my new mythtv replacement stuff I am working on. I don’t know how perfect it would be, but it would get me up and running pretty quick, I think, for some of the interfaces. I could then develop them as very simple web pages that could be the same on my laptop as on the TV, with just point and click interfaces, rather than the whole up/down navigation thing most remotes would need. It might be a good thing to get that stuff up and running too sometime, but this might get me past the uninteresting interface stuff and deeper into the usable backend infrastructure I want to be working on.
Anyway, thought people might be interested, if you hadn’t seen this sort of stuff before.
