The project that I recently worked on is a reaction time test made by using an Arduino. It works like so:
- Press the start button to begin.
- Now a randomly generated number will appear on the screen; the task is to press the corresponding button as quickly as possible, as it will be timed.
- This will be repeated 10 times and in the end, the user will see their average and total reaction time.
P.S. If you press the right button you will hear a snippet of the GTA San Andreas theme song, but if you press the wrong one you will hear a part of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5. In the end, if you pressed all 10 buttons correctly you will hear a longer version of the soundtrack and thus be praised as the winner!
A reaction time test made with an Arduino.
Modules: Circuit board, speaker, LCD display, microcontroller
I used the Arduino starter kit provided by our school. The modules that I used were the circuit board, speaker, an LCD and of course the Arduino microcontroller.
I have never worked with electronics before, so I had lots of fun connecting all the modules and trying out different things! I will definitely buy more parts in the future to work on bigger projects.
