Details

For our project we are going to create a a mini-game in which we will have ‘race track’, upon which there will be a character ‘driving’ around the track. This character will be controlled via a controller/input device which will control the speed at which  the character goes around the track. The object of this will be to keep the character on the track and going around as many times and as fast as possible, without flying off the edge.

Our inspiration for this comes from a toy/game. An example of this can be seen below.

Further Considerations:

As we’re just in the beginning stages of our project we do not know of any problems we might run into or the materials we will be using. We do however feel that our project should be fun in it’s design and should provide for some entertainment for anyone who wishes to try their hand in our game. This project is feasible because we have the basis of the project is already laid out for us, we just have to figure out how to construct one of our own and make it operate.

We are going to try to attempt to a speedometer/ g-force monitor for a small vehicle.

Further Considerations:

We feel that this project is feasible for entry level engineering students. All we have  do is develop a G-Force and Speedometer using and Arduino controller that can be programmed for the following function.  We might put LEDs on the vehicles or completely try something different.

Details

Our game is reminiscent of a jackpot arcade game. Specifically, one similar to the one in the image to the right. Instead of aiming for the “jackpot” to win tickets, the object of the game will be to help WU score a basket. It will be a much more simplified version, but the concept of how it works will still be the same. Instead of a ring of lights, there will be a simple line of eleven lights. The light in the center being a perfect swish. The ones immediately left and right will simulate bouncing off the rim and the rest will just be a missed shot. The lights will run back and forth on their own, and will only stop on a light when the player pushes a button. Depending on where the player stops the lights, certain sounds will be produced. For example, if the player gets a perfect swish, a short victory tune will play similar to older 8-bit games. A different tune will play when the player “bounces off the rim” and when the player “misses.” The LEDs will resume their back and forth motion after being stationary for 3 seconds.

Further Considerations:

Similar to: Foam Project, ARDUINO

Materials: 

1 – 8″ x 2″ x 4″ block of wood 

11 – LED lights and a copious amount of wiring to go with them 

1 – 9V battery 

1 – 3″ x 6″ piece of foam (to make WU)

AT LEAST 1 pack of markers (to color WU)

1 – X-ACTO knife (to cut WU out from the foam)

1 – Tri-fold

Details

We are going to construct a miniature arena.  Inside the arena there will be a bull fighter and a bull. 

Where the seating of the arena is there will we be an array of LED lights around the top.  Inside this miniature arena there will be a bull which will be operated by a small motor.  The bull will travel on a track of some sorts toward the Matador.  When the bull approaches the Matador he will raise his arms, holding a cloak, and the bull will pass under it.  The bull will then return back to his original place in the arena. The LEDs will also light in an array when the bull passes under the cloak.  All will operate with a motion sensor.

The entire project will be operated by the Arduino UNO.  If time permits there will also be a speaker installed somewhere in the arena.  It will announce “OLAY” when the Matador lifts this cloak.

Further Considerations:

There will be a lot going on with El Matador.  The kids at Exploration place should enjoy it, ”OLAY”

We will also have a tri-fold information/display board.
