Why did we add more players?

First we think if our game has more player will more exciting that why we decide to has 2 players. After that we curious about how well radio signal can handle? So, we used all of our Calliope to play the game to see their ability but the result not much good. There some limitation with Calliope

  • Delay In Serial port
  • Slow Gesture Detection
  • Buttons Sometimes Malfunction
  • Only 16KB RAM

Make it wearable

Next step we designed prototype case for Calliope. In order to portability and suitability for kid’s movement, we decided to design it like a watch or wristband.

3D Modeling

This is my first time to learn about 3D modeling. I have tried with Blender first because I have heard this one for long time but never try. If you are beginner too, this tutorial is really helpful (Sorry but is in Thai)

Preparing for 3D Printer

Next step after we have 3D model is Slicing model into layer for 3D printer which inject filament follow each layers. But we don’t have to so by ourselves, we used Cura. Cura is software which slice 3D model and prepare for printer; we also have to select type of material, size of nozzle, density of infill here.

Let’s print it out!

To print it out, we need to use SD card bring file from Cura and put it to card reader space at printer. Selected file name and choose print command BUT before you can print, you should prepare build plate first by spread glue around for protecting build plate surface from hot filament that come out of high-heat nozzle.
