I finally (FINALLY!) figured out, once and for all, what I’m doing for my PComp final project and I am EXCITED.
The project is called “Synced!” and this is how it goes…
Imagine a large (styrofoam perhaps?) board with 2 identical mazes that face opposite directions, something like this:
Two players get on each side of the board, each player facing a maze. They both use “finger gloves” (as seen in the upper left side of the image above) to travel down the maze with their fingers. They want to get to the end of the maze at the same time, in the same speed (this is not a race, hence the name of the game). If they accomplish this, they have succeeded. How do they know they’ve gone the same speed, you may ask?
Each maze has several flexisensors embedded into it so that when different parts of it gets pressed, a sound is heard. Sound effects will be funny and perhaps startling. The flexisensors will be camouflaged into the maze so that the players won’t suspect the sounds, and probably jump in their seats when they hear them. The finger gloves will be decorated as friendly (reversed) finger puppets, ready for their adventures down this journey. I think this will be a fun, amusing project for spectators and users.
