Now you can play Rock, Paper, Scissors by yourself!
Last week, we talked about a Sign Language Glove that could translate American Sign Language into American English. It was an awesome project with a very useful purpose! Today, we're talking again about a "glove hack" with this cool project from Steve Hoefer - the Rock, Paper, Scissors Playing Glove.
Check out that video! Basically, the glove uses flex sensors to determine which hand (rock, paper, or scissors) the user is throwing. The glove then displays its own "hand" on a small screen. It keeps track of the score and monitors your playing strategy so it can adjust and play to win! A great tool to thwart boredom! Steve referenced SparkFun's Inventor Kit Manual (see page 34) to implement the flex sensors into his project. Visit Steve's website for more information on this and many of his other projects (I'm partial to the secret knock door unlocker)! Great work, Steve!
