Device::USB::MissileLauncher - interface to toy USB missile launchers
use Device::USB::MissileLauncher; my $ml = Device::USB::MissileLauncher->new(); $ml->do('left'); $ml->do('up'); $ml->do('fire');
This implements a basic interface to the toy USB missile launchers that were on sale in Marks and Spencers Christmas 2005 and later at 'I want one of those'.
It has two methods - new() and do(). do() takes a string out of the following list.
stop left right up down leftup rightup leftdown rightdown fire
Ian Jeffray published some C code to work with the Missile Launcher at http://ian.jeffray.co.uk/linux/ and Scott Weston published some Python code at http://scott.weston.id.au/software/pymissile-20060126/ , both sets of code helped a lot when I was working out how to control the toy.
Jonathan Stowe also helped with the debugging to get v0.03 out, he spotted the C code sending the init strings everytime.
