For last week's assignment, I tried to create a potentiometer from scratch.
This time, I wanted to try and create something that would let people interact with it.
Being only able to use digital I/O was tricky, but it was a great exercise. Personally, since I know the material, I tried not focusing on the actual tech behind and tried, really hard, of thinking about what I wanted to convey to people using it.
The game is simple:
Try to guess a random pattern.
If you press a right key, a light turns on. When you guess the whole 4 pattern, you win!
Schematic of the circuit
4 Push buttons
Piano keys are used as an interface
Laser cutting of the pieces.
By doing this, I learned more about laser cutting and I'm more confident about doing it anytime I need it.
I definitely needed more time to make it more robust.
The small breadboard was a definite limitation, so I'm getting a bigger one for future projects.
