As many of you know the Legend of Zelda is one of the most popular video game series to have ever been made. The Ocarina of Time is probably the most popular game in the series having a total of 7.6 million copies sold during it's lifetime. One of the most iconic features of the Ocarina of Time is when you open a chest.
As you go to open a mysterious chest a tune starts to play. This tune causes anticipation and suspense. When the tune hits it's climax Link holds the item he has found over his head in victory and a triumphant score is played. You feel accomplished for just opening a chest and holding an item.
So the goal for to day is to recreate that here. So equip Master Sword and grab you Hylian Shield, you have some items to collect!
Once you have clear all of the dungeons and gathered all of your items let the adventure begin!
The first thing to consider when setting up your chest is the circuit of everything inside. The main part you really need to worry about is the button set up. The reason why this is such a big concern is because I used the actual chest as a button. When the lid is closed the button is being pressed. When the lid is open the button is not being pressed. It's a great way to get the timing correct for when the user opens the box.
You'll want to make sure you have enough space in your chest to hold a battery pack, a Max32, a LED strip, and wires. If you want to have your box look more beautiful then you'll have to find away to cover up all the wires and circuitry.
