Inspiration

We tried to make pong with sphero balls, but we couldn't calculate the angle of reflection after collision. So we decided to stick with curling instead.

What it does

You set a value of time and speed to get to a target.

How we built it

Using a raspberry pi to light up some LEDs and the sphero online JS editor.

Challenges we ran into

Trying to get the raspberry pi to connect to the network. Trying to calculate the angle of reflection after collision.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Actually getting the LEDs to light up. Getting the sphero balls to move.

What we learned

Sphero balls are annoying to program.

What's next for Explosive Curling

Nothing much.
