Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots Live Hack (Part 10)
I've always loved the look of the Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots game but absolutely hated the feel of it. My goal will to robotize the game. I'll be adding in Micro HDD servos for the punching arms and 2 mini gantry systems for the X-Y movement. I'd like the game to feel like a real life super punch out! I hope to add the capability to play with two players (USB joysticks), or against an A.I. opponent. I'd also like to incorporate the power glove in some way. While I'm not a fan of robot violence I do have a special place in my heart for friendly, non-destructive, competition.
This week we'll be putting the final touches on the project and getting the ARC project dialed in to be ready for some boxing!
Challenges still left to do:
- Tweak Software/Hardware for: Player vs Player. Player vs AI, and AI vs AI
