This project makes an electronic variation of the classic Twister
game. The mat consists of a 4 x 4 grid of panels which are outfitted
with pressure sensors and multicolor LEDs. The panels are lit by
different colors, and they change colors at a faster and faster rate.
The objective for each player is to stay only on tiles of a given
color. The last person to remain wins.
Twister is a classic party game, and has already proven to be popular.
This enhanced version expands on the initial concept of the game. By
making the tiles light up and change color in response to player
feedback, it creates an interactive and intuitive video game
environment for the players. Also, the electronic version is very
versatile. Different variations of the game could exist in the same
packaging, and the game could be playerd at various levels of
difficulty. There could also be a single player mode, where the user
memorizes the tile sequence, which is played along with the music. This
mode would be analogous to a breakdancing version of DDR.
