    Win an Raspberry Pi 3 and Raspberry Pi Cloudio Dev Board!

    In this episode, Clem was not satisfied with the wireless transmission for the movement data  - "it kinda works, but it's really laggy."

     

    Your challenge is to describe a design or code approach to send data wirelessly from the MPU6050 to the Raspberry Pi (or another Arduino) so Clem can remove the wired connection to the Pi's USB port.

    Submit your entry in the comments below by 26-November, 2018.

    Clem will select the winner on 30-November.

    Clem revisits his HACK like HECK project, the VRpi!  A Virtual Reality System for the Raspberry Pi. The original device did run  Doom exclusively. The VRpi  2 runs OpenArena and other Games, you can even use it as a cheap pseudo VR Kit for your PC-Games. Thanks to the Raspberry Pi 3+ some Arduino micros and Radio transmitters.
