Play 3D Tic Tac Toe with Android and Freetronics RGB LED Cube

Enthusiast Jim Clark has found an interesting way to play three-dimensional Tic Tac Toe - with the use of an Android smartphone and a Freetronics RGB LED Cube and Bluetooth Shield. In this example the human plays the Android phone which is running a Java-based implementation of the game.

This allows for the use of the phone as a colourful game controller - which sends the display commands via a serial Bluetooth link to the RGB LED cube which displays the moves of the human and Android player. A quick demonstration is shown in the following video:

Kudos to Jim for such a neat project, and the Java code can be found in his github page. And for more, we're on facebookGoogle+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.

As part of the Arduino and Bluetooth experience you'll need a Bluetooth device for your Arduino projects, and to meet this need we've released our new Freetronics Bluetooth Shield:

We've made it simple to use - the Bluetooth Shield acts as a serial link between the other Bluetooth device. Furthermore there's a wide range of jumpers allowing you to select which digital pins to use for data transfer, increasing compatibility with other shields. And with our Quick Start guide it's easier than ever.

Our Bluetooth Shield for Arduino is now in stock and ready to ship, so for more information and to order - visit the shield's product page.
