Glider is a classic Macintosh game where you guide a paper airplane through a series of rooms. What could make this game even better? Controlling it with an actual paper airplane! You'll combine your paper airplane with an nRF52840 LED Glasses Driver board running CircuitPython to guide your glider to glory. 

The nRF52840 LED Glasses Driver has Bluetooth and an onboard accelerometer. The LIS3DH accelerometer detects the angle of the paper airplane. The CircuitPython code converts the angle to a keypress to control the game over BLE.

There is a 3D printed part for your paper airplane to slot into. The board has a case that attaches to the paper airplane holder.
