Today I’ll be demonstrating how I put together a little RFID maze game for Arduino. The code and 3D print files are included, so feel free to make yourself one following the steps below!
I wanted to make a toy for children, that would blend a virtual and physical experience. With this device they can scan common objects that contain RFID chips (metro cards, pets, clothes, etc) and make these objects more playful and interactive. Every time you find a new RFID chip, the arduino generates a maze for you to solve. Complete the maze and you’ll hear a merry jingle through the piezo speaker. The more mazes you solve, the more music you will be able to hear!
Here’s what you will need for this project:
Arduino UNO 1588AS LED Matrix, 2 x 74HC595 shift registers 8 x 220 Ohm resistors MFRC522 RFID module RFID tags 4 x large push buttons 2 x thin metal wire (for the hinges)wires, solder, perfboard etc. 3D printerI advise you to work out the project on a breadboard first before soldering everything together.”
