Super Mario Brothers with an Arduino


Although this is still a work in progress, I think it’s great! All you need is an Arudino, a few buttons, and an 8×8 LED matrix to make you own simplified version of this arcade classic. What’s next Halo? Let’s hope so! More information, including the Arduino code, can be found in the Vimeo description.

This is a game project for S10-05833 – Gadgets, Sensors, and Activity Recognition in HCI taught by Scott Hudson at Carnegie Mellon University. I created a simple version of Super Mario Bros using an 8×8 LED matrix (one color), an Arduino Nano, two buttons for the input (forward and jump), and a piezo sensor hooked to a separate Arduino for the theme song.
