Build your own Overwatch Lucio Blaster! Use Arduino, NeoPixels, MP3 Music Maker, Audio FX board, and a 20 watt amplifier to drive the impressive blasting sound effects, lights, and music from this Overwatch prop gun!

Pokemon GO has shown us that people can really go crazy over running around our cities bent on catching imaginary animals. It has also shown us that people are going crazy over chasing down said animals at all hours of the night and not always paying attention to what is going on around them. This is amplified when we are talking about children that are having a blast literally trying to catch them all. Build a safety light that's also a lovely way to show team spirit with this no-solder project!
Kung Fu video games are only as good as the controllers used to interact with them. One Finger Death Punch (OFDP) for Steam on the PC is one of those games that's OK to play with a mouse or an XBox controller, but with Wii Nunchuks the fun meter is maxed out! This project shows how you can transform Wii Nunchuks into custom nunchuck controllers for the OFDP video game on a PC using a Nunchucky adapter and Pro Trinket creating what we call the iTapStick!
Ever wanted to create your own game show environment. Hack a Duo Pop Game infrared (IR) receiver so you can create your own game show system using wireless poppers with a PC or Mac computer. This modification allows the IR receiver to interface with both PC and Mac game show software via the USB. This project leverages lessons learned from previous tutorials at adafruit.com involving 1) IR decoding and 2) the virtual USB library. This is a great weekend project for learning about wireless IR protocols and USB communication using the Pro Trinket.
Replay those old school retro videos games and cut the cord to build your own wireless SNES controller powered the EZ-Key Bluefruit. Our SNES controller has 12 buttons, which is perfect for the EZ-Key. A slide switch at the bottom easily let's you power it on. The top includes a USB charger so you can recharge the lithium battery.
