We decided to make something Dragonball related as the finale was the same day as the hackathon. We wanted to make something related to transoformation of power levels lke Goku in a fun way. We decided we wanted to act like Super Saiyans ourselves!
What it does
Currently, you can transform througb 5 different forms (Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2 and 3, Super Saiyan God, and Super Saiyan blue by. . . Yelling into the mic! If you scream louder and hold, you will reach your transformation, and different transformations have cool effects.
How we built it
We built it using Java, specifically using the Swing API for our GUI and Maven to handle dependencies and form our jar file.
Challenges we ran into
Some challengers were how to detect loudness of the microphone, playing gifs in a JFrame, and creating some settings for the app.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud that we're able to successfully play gifs and we met our goal of having 5 different transformations with some effects like playng music.
What we learned
We learned extensively how to tap into catching microphone activity, JFrame, JPanel JButton etc... and how to be a Super Saiyan!
What's next for Super Saiyan
We hope to make effects and transitions pop out more with cooler transitions. We also hope to make a Versus mode by scoring how well someone maintains a transformation so people can compete on who can yell the loudest and longest!
