Abstract

The purpose of this project was to design a new handheld Virtual Environment controller. The design goal was to use accelerometer technology, along with a unique combination of other inputs in a device usable by any computer with a USB port. The device is based around an embedded microprocessor that formats both analog and digital signals and communicates with a software environment over USB. The Virtual Environment was designed to provide graphical interaction based on received input data.
