The Ben Heck Show - Episode 245 - Ben Heck's Hackmanji Board Game Part 3
The last piece of the Jumanji-esque puzzle falls into place as Ben, Karen and Felix complete the Hackmanji puzzle board -- and with your help. Putting the finishing touches on the board involves combining the mechanical with the electronic as Ben ensures the servos line up and the player pieces don't clash, all while making sure the micro-controller doesn't run out of RAM and I/O. We get to hear what Felix sounds like as he announces the status of the game while Ben distresses it by hitting it with a hammer. Meanwhile, Karen's design changes make the game more accessible. Tell us what you think of Hackmanji over at the element14 Community, where you will be able to find the code and files, as well as chat with The Ben Heck Show team.
