Microbit Steady Hand Game Tutorial
In this tutorial we will show you how to make a steady hand game, where the users has to navigate their way through a wire maze without touching the bare wire of the maze. This project is super easy to make and cheap too!
You will need:
- Microbit USB cable
- Battery pack
- pipe cleaners
- 1 metre of solid core wire
- Crocodile clips
- 10,000 Ohm Resistor
- A cardboard box (cat food box is good)
- Craft things to paint / decorate your box
Wiring up the circuit is really easy, you just need to make a Pull-up resistor circuit that will register an input of high when the wires are touching(when your controlled wire touches the maze wire) and registers a low when the two aren’t touching.
Here is a simple script that you can test to see if you have successfully wired up your Microbit! This code can also be used to test other projects that use a digital input.
Take a look at the complete video for making the project, from start to finish.
