Arduino based Split-Flap game

 Dutch enthusiast and Instructables, member "the_anykey" aka Richard has designed and build a fascinating game as a present for the upcoming season. It is a basic quiz-style game, however the display is not an LCD module - instead, a large custom-made split flap display. Controlled by a stepper motor it is fast and quite entertaining - in the same way as watching the old flight display boards at the airport.  Nevertheless it's a great project - and described in detail during the following video:

As well as the original game, another video about making the split-flap display is provided and all the design files. So click here to get started. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

If you're new to Arduino, the first step is a solid board for your projects - our Freetronics Eleven - the Arduino-Uno compatible with low-profile USB socket, onboard prototyping space and easy to view LEDs:
