Project Info
The Mouse is a software/hardware game consisting of a screen and a massive mouse. Goal is to move a file into the bin located on the opposite side of the screen. The mouse runs away from the player’s hand when they try to move it.
Completion date
2019
Array of IR sensors is used to detect the position of the player’s hand. The mouse moves on four omni directional wheels positioned at 90 degree angles relative to each other, allowing for quick evasion without the necessity for turning. Two DC motors are used, each powering a set of two parallel wheels. A capacitive surface on top switches the motors off when the mouse is caught.
