8x8 LED Matrix Driver Game


This Game Maker II kit is a game design platform using a single color 8x8 matrix LED without the need for a shift register or expensive Arduino. The kit includes a speaker for sound effects and 3 tactile push button switches. With the Pong game, two buttons control paddle direction and the third controls the "start game" function. The 8x8 matrix is bright and easy to see in almost all lighting conditions. Even if you have never programmed a controller before, you will be writing your own games in record time with this addictive little platform. The kit is powered by 4 AAA batteries (not included) and requires either an inexpensive USB or homemade Serial cable.
