WunderYoPinball @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi

from Dion Olsthoorn via hackster.io

At my company, we have a pinball machine which I play regularly. It’s a 2 minute walk from my workplace to the pinball machine, and it happens quite often that I walk to the machine to find out someone else is already playing pinball.

What a waste of time… Couldn’t the WunderBar help me out here?

Of course it can: WunderYoPinball helps me and my colleagues with managing an online waiting list for the pinball machine. Powered by the WunderBar and Yo!

The project is easy to explain: WunderYoPinball uses the WunderBar‘s proximity sensor to detect if someone is currently playing the company’s pinball machine.

When the pinball machine becomes available/free again, it sends out a “Yo” message to the first person on the waiting list. To enlist yourself for the pinball waiting list, just install the Yo app and send a “Yo” to your pinball machine’s Yo API account.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
