Step 7: Box LED's

Box LED's
To illuminate the box locations so you can play the game in the dark I installed three white LED's (green Wires) per box that are always on. I bough white LED's Christmas lights and cut them in groups of three in a string of lights. I punched holed in each box and glued them in position on the sides and soldered with a 330 ohm (1/2W) resister to be powered by 12VDC. I will do this same this to all boxes for the game board. The white LED's light will be on all the time the game is powered on.
I also include color LED's (White Red Wires) in ever box also that will turn on and flash when it is detected by the microcontroller. I punched three 5mm holes on sides of all the boxes and glued the LED's in place. I used groups of red, green, blue, yellow, and green etc. Three are wired together in serial with a 220 ohm (1/2W) resistor that is connected to the MOSFET on the main circuit board that will be controlled by the microcontroller.
Hi, I love love this idea. We are going to use it for a display table for the fair. However, we do not need to light up each individual box as it is during the day. Is there anyway to make the electricty simpler? Honestly, it is all greek to me. I understand how a simple circuit works but this blows my mind!
<p>Hello, I would like to ask how was it received at your event. I would like to use it at a health fair to promote organ donation and awareness. I would like to talk with those who have made the model and the reaction from the audience. Thank you.</p>
Great idea, and people will not feel preached at. After all, Jesus probably laughed. Very nice
Can you please tell me how the trunkaroo game works?
they had something like one of these at Burning Man a couple years ago, except the mistakes caused you to get shocked by a very low voltage/current.
If it was both low voltage and current, it would not shock you. Most devices like shocking pens and gum packs operate at a few hundred volts, with very little current.
It seems like you have a very powerful microcontroller doing very little. You could program the PIC to blink the nose, and make the buzzing sound through a regular speaker, in which case you can alter it to make a variety of sounds. Since you have each area connected to a unique pin, you can have it make different sounds for each area.
you make this look so hard all you have to do is set it up so when your metal thing hits foil it completes a circuit
i know, i rember building smaller versons of these with some kids at a science summer camp.
Hi There! I was wondering if you would be open to renting this game out. I am planning a fundraising event and am looking for life size game. Only a few people would be chosen to play the game. Just curious where you are located. I am in Northwest Illinois.
I'm guessing your name is Mark McCuller? :)<br/><br/>If I have to do a project for anatomy, I hope this will be allowed. This would be <em>the</em> most fun to make and use, and I'm pretty much guaranteed a good grade!<br/>
there is already a operration
You have to make a video of it i wanna see that!!! WOW, i was expecting a simple project, but you have really made it technical! NICE!!!
The Video is now available enjoy.....
Hey mark do you live near knoxville because i was on a bike ride and i passed a church that said trunk 0 treat on it
I think a lot of churches do this because my church and my friends church both did this (I live in Michigan).
Great Idea! I've always wanted to operate lawfully... MWOHAHAHAHAHA Mexican heart transplants.
