    Simon Says Sketches & Enclosures 

    1. Finger Says

    My idea came from a popular game in Taiwan called “烏龜烏龜翹” (I can’t find the similar game in here). We put our hand (usually one hand) on the table and raise one finger at the same time. If you raise the same finger as the host did, you loose in this round. Instead of using buttons, I put LED lights and sensors on each finger to sense the movement.  So, user will answer by their gesture.



    Enclosure: gloves

    2. Twister

    I want to make a physical game: a live size twister (4 by4). There are 16 items and four color. Each item is separate from the blanket so user can customer the game by relocating all the items.  

    ImageEnclosure: blanket



    3. Simon Says

    I want to create a real Simon. Hopefully, he can have facial expression.


    Enclosure: cardboard box

    Simon Says Sketches 

    I want to make my enclosure out of eatable materials. This is inspired both by one of the makers faire’s people, he made gears out of sure. And my thesis will be realted to food so I am taking advatage of this class to explore the use of food, probably focusing on waste.

    This are some examples:

    some bottons:

    led’s? Playing with your birthday cake before eating it?:

    Proposal for Simon Says Game 


    When I was shopping on Sparkfun, I came across this really cool-looking button pad, which combines LEDs and buttons together. I immediately think it perfectly fits in in my projects.

    As for the major enclose, it would be a acrylic box. Since Simon Says is an reall old game, my idea is to give it a brand new, modernized look.

    SimonSays Assigment Week 2 

    Create at Breadboard with 4 LEDs, 4 Switches, and 1 Speaker.

    1)  Make Simon Say 1 color/tone.

    2)  Listen and check if User inputs the correct or incorrect button push.

    3)  If Incorrect button press, restart game.

    4)  If User is correct Simon says 2 color/tones.

    5)  Listen and check if user has put two 2 buttons correctly.

    6) Repeat to 6 patterns

    7) If user gets 6 patterns, Blink all Lights 3 times (or play nice song).

    –Show your project at the beginning of next class.

    Simon Says Ideas 


    1. Glove Simon Says :: By using just glove, playing simon says. // Wearable Toy!



    2.  Pull the Ring Simon Says : player should pull the rings following what Simon says.


    Inspired by …



    If I iterate this idea, I may use smaller rings that can be pulled by fingers.

    3. Turn Table Simon Says



    Inspired by..


    This locker makes me confused some times, but so much fun to turn the knob!  It reminds me a DJ’s turn table.

    My Ideas For Simon Says 


    1. Clover Decor

    Use transparent plastic + half transparent  paper + LED inside, little buttons which can be held between two fingers



    2. Flower Pillow

    Carefully hide LEDs in the four petals of the flowers, use little buttons?( or photo resister)




    3. Xylophone

    Simon Says Game For Pianists 

    A. Basic Idea

    Beside being a simple game, I’d like to transform the Simon Says game into a learning tool for future piano players.

    By memorizing given random C Major sound patterns and playing them on a “keyboard”, the player will be able to identify notes and play them on the right keys. [This example remains of course a very basic 4 key game].

    To recognize the keys, I’d like to use thermal sensors [if accurate enough]. These should recognize heat of the player’s fingers.

    As a consequence, the enclosure should be a small one, that fits in the player’s hand and that has keys of approximately the size of a piano key. The material on the keys should be heat-sensitive to make the sensors work underneath.

    The most important challenge will be to test the accuracy of the heat sensors.

    Simon Says Style Game – Proposals 

    1. Ideas Based on Found Enclosures

    1.a. Artist Panel Box
    Based on panels found in an Art Supply Store.
    LEDs are hidden under the translucent paper. User can only see their colors.

    IMG_4335 IMG_4334 prototype_a

    1.b. Pencil Organizer
    Buttons attached around the cylinder. LEDs inside, upside-down. User can only see the inner light while holding it.
    IMG_4345 IMG_4346 prototype_b

    1.c. Tupperware
    Arduino and LEDs attached to tupperware’s lid.
    IMG_4343 prototype_c

    2. “Blue Sky” Ideas

    2.a. Pyramidal Simon
    Made out of folded cardboard. Each face has an LED and a push button.prototype_d

    2.b. Locker-like Simon
    Inspired by the Simon Says dynamics, but not exactly the same. LEDs turn on in an angular sequence, just like in a locker. User has to repeat the same angular sequence.

    2.c. Keyboard-like Simon
    Self-explanatory. Slightly different from Simon’s original dynamics, though. Multiple buttons can be triggered at the same time.
