Arduino Space Invaders Game Dev Log #2: Parts and Setup

I’m currently working on an Arduino Space Invaders Game using a 0.96″ OLED as display.

In this post you will find a list of the parts I’m using for this project. I will also show you both an illustration and the schematics for the first prototype.

If you haven’t already, you might also like to read the first dev log about the project, where I give an introduction to the project and the project scope.

Arduino Space Invaders Game Dev Log #1: Introduction

I’m currently working on an Arduino Space Invaders Game. This is the first of several Arduino Game projects I have planned, and mainly serve as a warm-up project to get me back into Arduino and microcontroller programming again.

In this blog post you will find an introduction to the project including a section on the project scope. I’m not going to make a full detailed DIY on how you can make the game yourself, but instead write about the thoughts behind the development.

This Arduino Game Dev Log will hopefully also help others get started with similar projects by showing the process instead of only the result. Continue reading “Arduino Space Invaders Game Dev Log #1: Introduction”

How to get started with biped robots – Bob the Biped

A couple of weeks ago I made a post with cool advanced humanoid robots you can make.

The skill level (and money) required for most of the projects was however relatively high.

So this week is about biped humanoid robots for beginners. Continue reading “How to get started with biped robots – Bob the Biped”

Building an Arduino Game System 1.0: Setup and schematics

Posts in this series so far:

  1. Introduction

Setup and Schematics

In this first blog post on my Arduino Game System project, we will look at the basic schematics and ideas the project is based on. Continue reading “Building an Arduino Game System 1.0: Setup and schematics”

Building an Arduino Game System: Introduction

Earlier this year, I made an 8×8 LED matrix Arduino breakout game. The game was inspired by the classic Atari Breakout, but limited to 8×8 pixels for the display.

It was a fun way to test the LED matrix and also show how useful these small LED matrixes actually are!

The project also got my interested in other ways to create more advanced Arduino games and maybe even some kind of Arduino Game System. Continue reading “Building an Arduino Game System: Introduction”

Makers and the Maker Movement: The Maker Movement

What is the Maker Movement and how did it start?

This is the second post in the summer theme about Makers and the Maker Movement here on Maker Tech. This post will focus on the Maker Movement. The first post focused on who are the Makers, and how do you become one. Continue reading “Makers and the Maker Movement: The Maker Movement”
