Karate Cube

The first thing was how to make cubes stay where it is after hitting it. Somehow they knew how to can hop or roll away.. and with the projection, we needed them to be sturdy and in place. After hours of sewing this is how we did it:

the bodyweight keeps the cube in place when hitting and we sewed a robe for two cubes so that they can be transformed and standing on top of each other (for adults) or next to each other (so that the height suits to the kids).

We also got rid of messy wires and sensors, and in the coat that we made, we have added a pocket for conductive foam. Using that and conductive thread (sewing never ends), I think we did a good job making we the pressure sensor (thanks Antonius for teaching us how to do it).

The fabric sewed with conductive thread from on both and opposite sides of the foam that works exactly same as FSR. Look inside of our cube:

We put FSR underneath of the board, so that it changes the background music and starts the game.
(working like start button of the game).

Woon loves our red reset button (circuit inside) so there’s no doubt in whose room it will end up:
