DS Motion Card

The DS Motion Card is a motion sensor addon for the Nintendo DS. It contains a 3-axis accelerometer, as well as a 1-axis gyro sensor. The creator was kind enough to send me one, so that I could play with it and make stuff for it to help him promote it.

Anyway, so far I have made a simple marble demo, tip your DS and marbles roll around. Currently it’s very simple, no collision detection or anything. I’m probably going to make a game out of it, simulating those little keychain toys where you have a few marbles, and you have to get them all into their respective holes.


NOTE: To build, it will require a CVS version of libnds, dated 2007-01-10 or later. Dovoto added ndsmotion code into libnds, as well as a nice simple example.

  1. Hey there davr. I got nothing to say about this really, since I don’t have a ds motion card. When are you picking up your draw app again? I like my old version a lot. BTW, one of your demos inspired me to write a game– I started trying to make a water dropping experiment using depth mapping (…I think that’s what it’s called) anyway it turned out pretty good so I built a game around it, maybe you’ll see it next time they have a contest. Peace out davr.
