Arduino Helicopter Game

25/02/2010

Wow. Really interesting helicopter game with several nice feautures.

Specifications:

  • just under 8kb (so it should fit a cheap Atmega-8)
  • Speed and block size grow
  • Still a little glitchy, weird artifacts, is anyone able to fix them?
  • Day and Night mode, hold the button when game over for night mode, gentle press for day
  • Score build in, post your highscore in the comments ;)

To play:

  • Connect a KS0108 LCD as described in the library’s page
  • Connect a button with a pull-down resistor to pin 12
  • Make sure the KS0108 library is available
  • Upload the sketch
  • Enjoy!

Download it here…

nice job Dave.

More Arduino + LCD + PHP fun

11/02/2010

A step by step guide to have your arduino receiving (and displaying) php (via processing).
Also a nice bibliography of the project. Thanks Justin!

Annotated bibliography for the last couple of weeks:

http://dorkbotpdx.org/blog/kmat/serial_lcd (serial –> LCD … this is making more sense now, using case breaks to look for specific characters to insert a function, such as starting a new line)

http://www.ipipi.com/help/ipipi_in_out.htm (this is what I would need to receive messages, not as simple as a number, but maybe the best way to avoid having to get another phone number, I should also ask about a potential shortcode)

http://www.upsidewireless.com/how_virtual_sms_works.htm (this is the kind of service I’ll need for this project … SMS messages forwarded to email or accessible through HTTP requests … with the possibility of getting a Windsor-based number AKA longcode)

http://www.mydarkmaterials.co.uk/2008/11/interfacing-php-with-the-arduino/ (this is an example of interfacing PHP Serial with Arduino, and I suspect old enough that many of the problems the author ran into aren’t there any longer … maybe it’s been silly of me to ignore PHP … I actually have a decent idea of what I’m doing there)
