Make a Giant Snake Game Controller #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi #iLuvPi2

From instructables user Vish_R:

The Milwaukee Makerspace was selected for May 2015 Build Night with Raspberry Pi and Adafruit. The Raspberry Pi 2 Model B is faster than the 1st generation. With the increased speed and the Adafruit Perma-Proto HAT for Pi Mini Kit, I had to build an arcade game controller! So, I decided to build a giant game of snake for Maker Faire Milwaukee. Yes – the game famously played on Nokia phones.

In this game, the individual pixels will be made of milk bottles. A projector controlled via the Raspberry Pi will light up the pixels to display the game.

Small Arcade Joystick: This snappy 8-way joystick beckons you to play with it! It is rugged, and not too large, reminiscent of a Pac Man arcade cabinet. Unlike the potentiometer-based 2-axis and mini thumbsticks, this joystick uses 4 snap microswitches so it’s good if you want a directional control but not the best choice if you want proportional output (that is, its either on/off not sensitive to small movement changes).
