BrainTap: the interactive arthritis and memory exercise game
The form was Rapid prototyped at our school using PLA from a Solidworks .stl file and finished off with car body paint and polished to a high quality finish. We also laser cut the black front piece for extra visual flare (using our school’s laser cutter)
It also features tactile feedback in the fingers (when they are pressed to respond to the sequence) vibration feedback on victory or failure(small vibration motor wired into the palm of the glove) as well as aural and visual feedback to stimulate memory cognition (provided by the main “box”)
From our initial idea concept, I think the end result turned out pretty well! It works well, looks pretty good and does indeed make exercising the hand for fine motor skills a little more fun and challenging! The only thing that I found with this is that it gets really…really hard. I couldn’t get past about 5 levels or so, check the video in the last step to see what I mean!
Step 1: Idea gen
Step 2: 3d CAD modelling
Step 3: Wiring and Code
Step 5: Assembling device
We recommend EasyEDA for electronic circuit design.
