Hoop Trivia

Welcome to Hoop Trivia! I am adding a twist to the traditional way of playing trivia. Instead of pressing buttons to select an answer choice, players need to shoot basketballs into a hoop that corresponds to their answer (4 hoops, 4 answer choices). Hoop Trivia is inspired by an arcade game in Dave and Buster’s […]

Hoop Trivia is a traditional basketball arcade game mixed with trivia. It is inspired by an arcade game in Dave and Buster’s called Connect 4 Hoops, where players […]

theWindow

In the spirit of halloween, Emma Grimm and I designed and constructed an interactive virtual window. It consists of an ultrasonic sensor, two makeshift switches, a computer monitor and a curtain on a clothing rack. Our window scene is animated in p5 using royalty-free images found online. Our project consists of both animation events that […]

Midterm Concept

The idea is to create a virtual spooky window using a p5 sketch displayed on the screen. We are planning to place a clothing rack with curtains in front of the screen. The p5 sketch will be constantly animating a scene, but the state of the curtains will act as a switch that will control […]

Epic Fail :(

The concept: create an instrument similar to a keyboard where each button plays a different note. The execution: A beeping mess. The speaker would not play any tone. I troubleshooted my project by rewiring the whole circuit from scratch and then double checked the connections for each button. I started to debug my program by […]

Block Dude

For the past few weeks, I have been brainstorming about creating a circuit with a motor that reacts according to the distance or a gesture of the user. The circuit I used to build this week consists of an Arduino Uno, one LED, one phototransistor. Meet Block Dude. He is very lonely and constantly looking […]

LED Constellation

Since I learned about digital input and analog input last week, this week I decided to build upon on my star constellation project and add functionality to it using an Arduino. For this project, I built my circuit using an Arduino Uno, one button switch, and 9 LEDS. The schematic for the circuit is found […]
