Supermario Question box - (Makerfaire 14)

 

Project summary:
This project aims to substantialize the game object into real world. When the question box was hit, one of the coin/mushroom/flower/star will show up in the above display.

 

Details:
The Question box contains three components - display(for showing coin/mushroom/flower/star), switch (for detecting hit) and the sound module (for making item sound). The display was 16*32 LED matrix and I build one software for translating pictures into byte array to use it in the Arduino.
