Build you own Quiz Game Show Controls

If you have family game night or run competitions such as quiz shows or trivia nights, then enthusiast David Caplette's project will be of interest. It's a fully self-contained quiz game buzzer system that's perfect for keeping scores of four players, and also quite adaptable for customisation.

Based around an Arduino-compatible circuit, it has four external player buttons that are enclosed in strong wooden boxes - ideal for enthusiastic players. And once the fastest player has pressed their button, the other thee are locked out by the system to keep gameplay fair. For a full demonstration check out the following video:

A great project that makes game play fairer and more accurate - for complete details visit David's Instructable page. And for more, we're on facebook, twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well. 

If you're wanting to make your own Arduino-compatible project such as the game show system above, you'll need an ATmega328P MCU with Arduino Uno bootloader:

This is the same Atmel AVR ATmega328P microcontroller used in the official Arduino Uno, as well as our ElevenEtherTenUSBDroid, and other boards. Perfect for building your own Arduino-compatible project directly on a breadboard or on a custom PCB, or for replacing the MCU in an existing board. Comes with the Arduino Uno bootloader pre-installed. Better still, it even has a special label stuck on top with details of the pinout, so you don't even need to look up the datasheet when connecting it up in your project!
