Accelerometer controlled OLED 3D cube

Posted on Tuesday, January 18th, 2011 in OLED by Ian

Markus used an MMA7455L 3-axis accelerometer to detect the direction of the gravity in this cool demo:

I am using the MMA7455L breakout board to control a 3D cube displayed on a (SPI-modified Seeedstudio) OLED display.

My MMA7455L library is available in the forum.

Get the MMA7455L breakout board for $15 at Seeed Studio. Back in stock and shipping now.

Thanks Markus! Via the comments.

    Thats extremely cool!!!

    This is awesome! Does this mean that we can already start achieving this kind of effect on all our smartphones equipped with accelerometers?

    I blogged about it:

    Can you send the source code (c) for the accelerometer/Oled project. Looks like it’ll be a nice tabletop ornament.
