Real Life Arcade Game made with xBee and Arduino #ArduinoMonday
Thanks to Michael for writing in to share his installation project with us! He writes:
…The setup is a room with an oldschool TV and an oldschool froggerlike arcade game on the screen.
One of the players have to go to another room and do all the moves. Whatever is pressed on the gamecontroller gets transmitted as spoken orders like “left”, “right” etc into another room, where the second player has to perform it. The figurine on the screen is adjusted according to the tracked movements of that second player.
If the player gets caught (sic), he has to leave and another of the remaining players of a team has to enter and move.
Its made with Openframeworks, Arduino, xBee, and pozyx.
Each Monday is ArduinoMonday here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Arduino related products. Adafruit manufactures the Arduino right here in the United States in cooperation with arduino.cc. We have a huge selection of Arduino accessories and all the code and tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
