Efstathios Lymperidis and Thodoris Bais recently debuted the aptly named Lightgame, which the two university student designed to challenge the reflexes of four players.
Key project components include:
- A pair of Atmel-based Arduino Uno boards (ATmega328 MCU)
- TFT LCD screen
- Four buzzers
- Push button square
- LED transparent 5mm RGB
- Resistor 1/4W Carbon 5%
- Diode 1N4148
- Jumper wires
- USB cable
“The game was developed using two Arduino devices connected in a Master – Slave configuration via the I2C synchronous serial protocol,” the duo explained in a detailed blog post.
“The Master Arduino is responsible for handling the buttons, displaying the correct RGB colors, [executing] all calculations for the score and stages of the game.”
Meanwhile, the peripheral Arduino is tasked with displaying messages on a TFT LCD screen and playing the appropriate music via a buzzer.
