Mike Cook was tasked with creating a crazy golf hole for FON (Full Of Noises), a festival of sound and art run in the Town of Barrow-in-Furness, United Kingdom. As part of the festival, the organizers wanted to transform the local pitch and putt golf course into a more novel experience. Mike’s final product is an Arduino-based golf hole, which uses a sound effects toy and a spinning spiral disk to provide golfers with feedback after sinking a shot and picking up their ball. According to Mike, most golfers jumped in surprise and some even bowed in reaction to the applause sound effect. Nice work, Mike! [via The Arduino Forum]
