To sell the concept for the radar and detection room we needed a working prototype. I managed to get a hold of a Parallax RFID reader which is compatible with Arduino. On the Arduino website you will find a sketch for the Parillax RFID reader. Because I had only one RFID reader I added a button and modified the sketch so you can cycle through modes. This is to emulate the game/login part and the node part (scan if you find a object) of the prototype.
The last couple of weeks I’ve been busy developing a game concept for a local museum. The museum has a room dedicated to radar and detection which needs an update and a game element. The game needs to be entertaining and edutaining for children between 10 and 12 years old, who are the main focus of the museum. In this project I’ve worked together with a team of other students. Everybody had different skills to bring to the table, ranging from the theoretical game design document, to character development, design, 3D modeling, programming and hardware.
