Mechanical Donkey Kong

Posted on Wednesday, September 26th, 2012 in Arduino, project logs by DP

Martin designed the Arduino controlled mechanical Donkey Kong game. The game area is laser cut, while Mario is mounted on a metal rod, which is controlled via two servos, allowing it to move around and jump. Controls are read by the Arduino through a NES controller.
