Build a mechanical "Parkour" game with Arduino

After the popularity of the mobile app "Flappy Birds" a few derivatives have been presented in various forms, and one example has been documented by Arduino fomrum member kathyelecfreaks. Her version is a physical game in the very sense, in that the player controls a physical "person" that is above a constantly-rotating belt of surface. An interesting exercise of bringing computer games to life, as demonstrated below:

The game is also an interestingd demonstration of integrating motor control, various sensors and inputs in a more complex Arduino sketch, so log in to the Arduino forum to learn more. And for more, we're on facebook, twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

 If you're looking into starting with Arduino and motor control  - check out our new HBRIDGE: DC/stepper motor shield. Based around the powerful Allegro A4954 H-bridge driver IC you can control two DC motors with complete ease, or one bipolar stepper motor. With connections for external power management, a complete beginners' guide and documentation - motor control couldn't be any easier. For more information and to order, visit the HBRIDGE: page.
