So I finally bought myself an Arduino Uno. I have been wanting to get more into micros and embedded computing for a while, but did not know how. Arduino is the perfect solution for relative beginners such as myself. Within a week of buying it, I had a project in mind I wanted to work with. Wanna hear it? Here it go:

I found the WiiChuck Library, and decided to make a little project which would take accelerometer data from the Wii Nunchuk, do a couple of calculations, and show the result on an LCD. This would give me some experience with Arduino, an external library (WiiChuck), and an internal library (LiquidCrystal). I'll try to update the results here as I make progress.
