A project log for HapticGames

Game modifications for using haptic instead of visual senses

Using the HaptiVision Belt as base we tried out if we can use it also as Display for playing games on it. Of course, with 16*8 pixel that's not high resolution, but we thought that at least games like Pong might work. Adaption was rather easy: Using an Arduino as controller, we added an 16*8 WS2812 LED matrix at pin6 as a display and two linear variable resistors as controllers at pin A0 and A1. The haptic matrix was then connected with the I2C port. So writing the code was for us the biggest issue (not for me, since Moritz Messerschmidt did the work), since we had such a belt already at hand. The Code can be now also found at the belts github page.
