Maker Faire: Rhode Island

MakerPong from Tellart on Vimeo.

Over the weekend Tellart hosted a couple of great events at the first-ever Rhode Island Maker Faire in Providence.  We kicked things off with a workshop on WiiMote hacking, where we taught folks how to write applications controlled by WiiMote gestures.  After that, and then again on Saturday at WaterFire, we installed our special interactive pong game – like the one from your childhood, but projected life-size on the floor and controlled via infra-red LED’s on your head.  Who says video games cause laziness?
