Starter Project

For the starter project, I created the Who Am I game which is similar to the popular mobile game called Heads up. I used a breadboard as well as the RedBoard from Sparkfun. In this game, the user puts the LCD and components to their head, where they can’t see the screen. 


What I did

I connected jumper wires to create a circuit to power the button, flow through the Potentiometer, LCD screen, and speaker. A battery is used to power the Arduino. I initially faced a roadblock was compiling the code onto the Arduino by selecting where to output in the IDE. Then, nothing was appearing on the screen, which was fixed by editing the potentiometer to reduce the resistance, which was restricting anything to appear on the screen and power the speaker. Then, I had a problem with my speaker because it was not working correctly. I fixed this by changing the wiring which did not allow current to flow through the speaker.

Next Steps

Now I must begin my main project by setting up the Rasberry Pi and downloading the correct software onto the source.

How it Works

Words are displayed on the screen and the user has to guess the word that appears with the help from the people around them. Once they get their guess correctly, then press the button to move onto the next word. The user gets 15 seconds for each word with a total of 25 words to guess from. If the timer runs out for a certain word, a buzzer is sounded and the game ends. If the user is able to get all 25 words in the set, the win and a buzzer is sounded that they have won.
