Date: 
Monday, March 18, 2013 - 19:30

Missing to play Snake on your cellphone? Tetris? Space Invaders? Don't worry! Today (18/03/2013, 19h30 @ ESAT 2.58, P&O room) we'll create our own game console with an Arduino!

We will build an Arduino shield with a cellphone screen, some buttons and a buzzer. Some sample code will get you up & running in no time. This will give you endless possibilities to create your own 8-bit games!

Registration is required and the parts cost will be max. 15 euro, without the Arduino. A number of Arduino Uno boards will be available, but please bring one if you have one!

Soiree Pratique: Robot Competition: How to start

Nov
19

During the competition, your robot may only start 5 seconds after we give the sign to start the round. To accomplish this, you can press a button or remove a wire. The easiest way to implement this is through a digital pin. You can configure an internal pull-up resistor on the digital pins (except for pin 13), in the following way:

pinMode(pin, INPUT); // set pin to input

digitalWrite(pin, HIGH); // turn on pullup resistors
