Welcome to the instructable for the game Button Hero! This game is a portable version of the game Guitar Hero. In this istructable we (my partner and I) will share with you how we have created this project both on a breadboard and by soldering.
Step 1: Step 1 - Collecting the Materials
The first step in any project is gathering the materials needed to finish the project.
The materials for Button Hero is as follows:
- 4 buttons (preferably diffrent colors)
- 4 LEDs (preferably diffrent colors)
- 8 short wires
- 1 Arduino microprocessor
- 4 8.2k ohm resistor
- 4 100 ohm resistor
- 10 wires
Step 2: Step 2: Building the Prototype on the Breadboard
Using the Schematic build the prototype circuit on the bredboard. Use the materials the were listed on the perviosu step. Make sure to follow the skematic exactly. One of the areas that my team messedup on was that we forgot the contect all the circuit ack to ground.
Step 3: Step 3: Code
The second part of building the prototype is coding.
One will need to rite code that satisfies the following pseudo-code:
1. light up randoms lights
2. count the number of correct hits
3. count the number of incorrect hits
4. increase the level at a certain score
Step 4: Step 4: Move Everything to the Circuit Board
Remember when we created the circuit on the bread board?
Move everything from the breadboard to the green circuit board exactly how it is on the breadboard.
REMEMBER: The components have to be placed in the exact position as on the breadboard.
Step 5: Step 5: Solder Everything to the Circuit Board and Conect All of Them the Same Way
Connect all the components the circuit board using solder. Then, using solder connect, on the back of the circuit board, connect all the components to each other by dragging the solder from one component to other component.
