Description

Our project turns a normal game of ping pong into a much more interactive, interesting, and challenging experience. As a team we decided to create a table that would allow users a more interactive experience playing “Pong”. In order to win a game of Pong teams must successfully throw a ping pong ball into one cup placed at the other end of the table. Once a ball has landed in each cup it may be removed from the playing field. After all ten cups have been removed from the playing field the game is over and the team with cups still in play is crowned the winner. In order to make our table more interactive we incorporated a set of infrared sensors, relay boards, LED rings, and micro-controllers to play tones, illuminate lights, and track progress of the game. During this process we spent time reading up on various micro-controllers, sensors, and electrical components. The combination of our research, previous knowledge, and hard work has enabled us to make a substantial amount of progress on our Pong Table and we continue to work on it with plans to have the final product completed by the end of March.
