A modern version of Beer pong. It is also great to have the ability to recreate such a common game on a mobile device.
What it does
The game itself works very similarly to the Beer Pong games a lot of people have come to know. The objective is to hit the phone with the ball before the opponent team hits your phone.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
One of the biggest challenges we had was actually getting the ball to register. In the beginning we were trying aluminum foil but with no success. We were about to give up, when Carlos came up with the idea of just using the gyroscope to detect any movements on the phone itself.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Overall just being able to execute something at last minute and putting the other projects in mind to the side and then coming back and creating something which we all thing is amazing and different is definitely something we should be proud of.
What I learned
Never Give Up
What's next for Smash Pong!
Possibly create native apps for each phone that will allow for much more customization and a much more accurate data.
