Level 1 - Both hands in the air!

A project log for Escape Room Box Puzzle Game

I don't have a room to spare for an escape room game so I made this box instead. Several exciting tricky levels to overcome!

First we need a box to put this all into. I found an interesting piece of old tech in the dumpster the other day and it came in a perfect wooden box with plastic cover. This box will hold all the electronics.

On to Level 1

The idea to the first level (well as another level) I got from another project I found on Youtube: 

In this box there is one sonar sensor that you need to keep the correct distance to in order to go to the next level, i liked this since I wanted to make the puzzle physical and interactive. in my game I mounted two sonar sensor on the top together with two large RGB Leds  to get visual feedback. When you start the game they are both red and if you start playing around you'll soon enough hold your hand at the right height over one of then and they'll become green - but only as long as you keep your hand there. Now the player should realize this and hold their other hand above the other sensor and when they are both green they will flash blue and you are done with level 1.
