TiltBoard is a device that outputs a linear voltage with respect to itís degree of tilt. It has 5 inputs/outputs: V+, GND, Yout, Xout, and Vref. The maximum voltage output by the board is variable depending on the voltage put into the VREF input. The minimum voltage output is 0 volts. The board outputs the max/min values for the Y-axis when it is tilted 45 degrees or more up/down. The board outputs the max/min values for the X-axis when it is tilted 60 degrees or more left/right. When it is between 0 degrees and the maximum tilt degree, it outputs a voltage linearly proportional to the degree of tilt and the maximum tilt.


After much demand for my product and lots of commercial interest, I have negotiated a deal with specialist peripheral makers Talismoon. We are working together on a very cool product, which will bring tilt sensitivty for the Xbox 360 to the masses. Unfortunately I can not say much more yet, but it will be worth the wait.

Stay tuned over the coming weeks!

Here is a tutorial (http://www.adamthole.com/?p=32) on how to make your own and below is a video of how it works...
