Pong on Arduinos
For our final project we want to use a combination of the arduinos and accelerometers to serve as controllers for a video game similar to the classic game of Pong. By using xbees, we are able to have the two arduinos interact with each other wirelessly. Each 'controller' will be composed of one arduino, an accelerometer, an xbee, and an LED matrix panel for the display. This would allow two people to play together while looking at their own display. Both displays would be mirrors of each other, ensuring that both players are able to see the same image. The arduinos would calibrate after they detect that both controllers have been turned on. After doing so, there would be a countdown allowing both players to ready themselves for the game. Once a player loses, the score would display on the screen for a few seconds and then the next round would follow.
