REAL LIFE QWOP PROBABLY STINGS A FAIR BIT

QWOP was a flashgame released by [Bennett Foddy] in the distant past. Players would use individual keys to trigger muscle spasms in their character’s legs, attempting to sprint as far as possible without hitting the ground. Hackaday alumus [The Hacksmith] wanted to recreate this in real life, and set to work. Initially planning to hack some TENS units to cause muscle contractions, instead a pair of lit ...

Arduino Project 6: Web-controlled music player

Our NetPlay project is built on a standard breadboard. In our previous Arduino masterclass we briefly introduced the Ethernet Shield an Arduino expansion board that adds Ethernet connectivity plus microSD card storage. We used that storage as the basis of a simple one-button digital audio player. It was functional but limited to 8-bit mono WAV files with a 19kHz sample rate. We also gave you the software to ...

Arduino Project 5: Digital audio player

So far in this series we’ve had a diverse look at how Arduino can interact with a range of real-world devices from servo motors to ultrasonic range finders TVs to humidity sensors. Now we’ll see if we could get the Arduino to make a few sounds. We’ll actually do a bit better than that – we’ll look at the importance of pulse width modulation (PWM) to microcontrollers by building our own digital audio player ...
