Ouija Board Game - Itsy Bitsy MO & Circuit Python

by JoshuaCW2102 on Sun May 16, 2021 6:49 pm

Hello,

I'm wondering if anybody has any similar projects I could learn from. I'm looking to create an Ouija Board game using magnets under the correct letters. When the players pass over the magnets in the correct order the game is solved. I'm trying to program this using an Itsy Bitsy MO and Circuit Python. I'm brand new to learning all of this and have been going through the beginner guides. Any help is appreciated.

Hmm.. I'm not sure how to make that work.

Magnets are easy to detect, but there's no easy way to tell one from another. A sensor in the planchette would be able to tell it was over a letter, but not which letter.

Reversing the design would work: putting a magnet in the planchette and sensors under each letter. You'd need to read a lot of sensors that way, but could arrange them like a metrix keypad.
