Sonic Pong

Combining LEGO Mindstorms sensors and a Raspberry Pi to make the classic Pong game, with a new control method

After getting a Raspberry Pi I wanted to see what games I could make with it. Coincidentally I had also received a LEGO Mindstorms set a few weeks prior, so I combined the two to create Sonic Pong.

The game play was the classic Pong game we all know (written in Python in this case), but rather than controlling the game with a paddle, keys or mouse, you controlled it by moving your hand closer and further away from an Ultrasonic Sensor.
