It’s a very simple game and was educational to build at the time, now to re-create it in hardware and software… Simulating the circuit in software is in some-ways harder to do than to actually built the circuit in electronic components, but in can be used as an introduction to building up simple RC networks in a teaching environment. To build the game, you’ll need almost all the bits in the SK Pang starter kit – 12 x LEDs, 12 x 270Ω resistors and one button. You can build it with less LEDs if you don’t have enough.
NEW PRODUCT – GPIO Ribbon Cable for Raspberry Pi®. That new Raspberry Pi® computer you just got has a row of 2×13 pin headers soldered on – those are the GPIO (general purpose input/output) pins and for those of us who like to hack electronics they are where the real fun is. By programming the Pi, you can twiddle those pins high or low, send and receive I2C and SPI data, and access the 3V and 5V power rails.
If you want to bridge those contacts out onto another PCB, you’ll want this cable! It’s 6″ long and has 26 socket & wire sets. Pin #1 is marked with a red wire. If you have one of our nice Pi Box cases, you can even have this plugged in while the case is closed by passing the ribbon cable through the slot on the side.
