Penny Arcade!


Students were asked to build a penny arcade game using their knowledge of electronics, electromechanical actuators, and sensors.  A Freescale 9S12C32 microcontroller is at the heart of each of these projects.  The arcade games were designed to accommodate players both young and old, and offered roughly one minute of tantalizing gameplay.
