Picture of ElectroFried electronic shock game

The ElectroFried is a game with a shocking fun level.
ElectroFried is developed for the Global Game Jam 2011 in Antwerp in design center the winkelhaak.

The Team Jekkos/ Cinezaster decided to make a simple game based on colliding electrons.
With a nasty side effect, a electro shock.

As a input devised I hacked a old computer mouse to control the electron and bring it to the proton without colliding with the other free spinning electrons.

A transformator of a disposable  camera is used to generate high voltages on the input mouse.

5 leds are used to show witch level you are and show animations in between.

A arduino controls everything.


Step 1: The controller

The controller is a old mouse. I removed almost everything inside and soldered my wires on the switches of the buttons.

On the arduino side there are pull-down resistors to keep the input level LOW when no switch is triggered.
 
very nice idea, this system could have many applications.

I added a zip.
I didn't wrote the java game I only made the electronics and the arduino sketch.
If you can't get it to work, ask jekkos for help, he wrote the java game.
