Welcome to our blog site for our ESE 350 Term Project Spring 2010!
For our project, we decided to create a virtual beer pong game. To simulate the game, we would have a board of LEDs to represent the 6 cups in different orientations. This board would powered using a microcontroller. To determine if a cup was made, our plan was to interface the Firefly node with the HCS12 microcontroller and use values from the accelerometer to gauge the player's throw force.
We began by ordering a board called the Peggy 2.0 which had its own microcontroller incorporated. The website description for the Peggy 2.0 is: http://s3.amazonaws.com/evilmadscience/KitInstrux/peggy2.pdf
Now, all we needed to do was wait for the Peggy to arrive and begin soldering/coding!! Stay tuned!
