My goals for this project are to be able to control a game on at least 2 axes and have fun while I'm doing it. I won't be attempting to recreate Nintendo's official Balance Board, as that seems to use scales to detect shifting of weight, while the board itself remains stationary on the ground. My board will actually require balancing, and it will move around freely. The design I started kicking around in my head pretty much dictated the type of game I'd be testing it out with. I figured skateboarding or snowboarding should allow me enough leeway in my input that I wouldn't be required to have the balance and coordination of Daniel LaRusso to play.
Some tennis balls, glue, plastic trays, foam strips, grip tape, and of course, a Wiimote were used to make this DIY'er Balance Board. For instructions on how to build your own, click on the link below.
