Making difficult decisions can be tricky and stressful. This new learn guide by John Park will help take off some of the pressure, instead letting your HalloWing-based Magic 9 Ball do the heavy lifting of your decision making!
By harnessing the HalloWing’s accelerometer to detect when the ball is turned upside down and right side up (or shaken), we’ll then run a highly mysterious algorithm (OK, it’s just a random number generator, sorry) to choose an image file to show on the TFT display.
A stylish housing filled with swirly mystery fluid completes the effect. Will you love building this project?
