The Rock was developed with younger gamers in mind who missed the chance to experience arcade games. This was our inspiration for this project. However, we wanted to add a modern twist to the classic games by using a Myo Armband as a controller.
Initially, The Rock started life as a Myo controlled piano with the aim of revolutionizing music instruments. After lots of trying and testing, the idea was changed to what The Rock is now. This marked a very interesting point in our journey since the focus had to shift completely and the demographics had to be researched again. With the arcade game vision in mind though, we set about developing The Rock.
After sleepless nights and many lines of code, The Rock finally met our vision. We are very proud of the Myo integration and the gesture controls. Also, we're proud of the simplicity of the project in terms of ease of use.
