Our 6th Arduino Jam @timelab has ended. In about 48 hours most teams went from idea to working prototype. The outcome was superb and it has been a real fun weekend !
- TEAM 1: Mario Kartuino (Midas, Hugo, Titu, Jérôme, Florentin)
Did you ever play Mario Kart? This team started out with the idea of a real live Mario Kart game, but changed the rules into a real live puzzle Mario Kart game. Controlled with the motion of your hand, you can guide your robot through the puzzle track as fast as possible.
- TEAM 2: Balloon colour game (Charles, Chris, Ludovic)
This game really started out from scratch. The idea of balloons changing colours, evolved into a really fun game, where the player has to change the colours of the balloons all into the same colour, by tapping them. To make it even harder, the game starts turning around and randomly changes colours if your not fast enough. The team even added “Simon says” into the code, so now this is a multi-game.
- TEAM 3: Sucker 2000 (Kurt, Gerd)
Do you want to help you wife, cleaning the table? No … how about a robot doing the job for you? Have a look at this table-sized self-driving vacuum-cleaner. If you order now, it even comes with an extra set of replacement brooms ! 😉
- TEAM 4: Urby the interactive egg (Jan)
Jan continued laying his egg. Remember Furby, this should even be better. It has no fur and thus, making it a real Urby. This egg interacts with humans using light, movement and sound. But Jan got stuck and his egg didn’t hatch. to be continued !
- TEAM 5: Interactive music (Pepe)
Pepe had this idea of an interactive drum machine, where he would manipulate sound, volume and pitch, moving his hands opposed to each other. With his feed he would manipulate drum sounds an thus creating a new kind of electronic dance music. The project needs some more fine tuning, but Pepe gave us a nice demo.
- TEAM 6: Guitar tutor (Federico)
Federico wanted to build a Guitar tutor, that helps you practice playing the guitar with LEDs showing where to put your fingers. He learned a lot about LED matrix’s, but got stuck. To be continued
- TEAM 7: POV stream (Toon, Erik)
Toon and Erik continued there work on the POV disk, showing streaming video. Last Jam they managed to show colours, now they where able to show small pictures. Not yet the end stage, but maybe next time they’ll finish the job: stream video to their self made television.
