Arduino + Unity 4

I finally picked up an Arduino Uno over the summer. My first project with it is a game idea I’m calling RoadRacers.

It’s similar to Skylanders in that each car toy has an RFID chip inside, which when read by a RFID reader loads a 3d model of it into the game at runtime. Pretty basic stuff but I just love having real world objects “transported” into 3D game worlds. I think it actually makes me appreciate the 3D models on screen more.  

This is a quick video of that process in action.
