A lot has happened in the past week; unfortunately, I was in Maine all weekend and didn't get a chance to update the blog. That being said, here are the new things we have done:
1. The monome "API" of sorts is mostly complete. This means we can display graphics/scores much easier using pre-defined functions.
2. About 60% of the game code has been written. Still to do: some interrupt routines, overtime, conrtol of motor/servos once they are integrated.
3. Many of the parts have been built/bought/obtained. These include:
18V Drill Motor for translating the backboard
monome Displays for graphics (note: we had to make them again with brighter LEDs)
SP-404 for sound effects (already own this, thankfully)
Making the backboards using the laser cutter (thanks to Eric Pinter/Savior of 350)
Starting a fire is a good idea.
Still to do: finish game code, incorporate motor madness, and get the last few parts, including EEPROM memory for high scores. Until then, we leave you with this picture, with the proverbial caption...
WORKING HARD OR HARDLY WORKING?!?!?!?!?!whoAoaOaa
