Never being able to win carnival games has always been a very sad experience, however the enjoyment of the people ruining....running the games was something we wanted to experience ourselves
What it does
Duck Hunt carnival game that is rigged to make sure you never win. The duck moves away from you based on your movement of the gun.
How we built it
Using arduinos, several motion sensors, a ClearCOre microprocessor, as well as a nerf gun
Challenges we ran into
Several of the parts that were receiving data broke along the way. Fitting parts together was difficult at first. IR was originally going to be used for the gun reciever and sender, however due to distance constraints could not be implemented.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Having the gun sensors and information from the gun fully functional
What we learned
Always ensure that the hardware used can support weight. If not, reinforce it beforehand
What's next for Carnival Duck Hunt Game
Perhaps a local carnival... next the world.
