Created for #BitWars by the Alba Family with the Mastermind of Alessandro and artistry of Nevada.
Using LittleBits, Star Wars Lego, Ninjago Spinjitzu Lego, Lego NXT a shoe box, we recreated the scene from the infamous duel on the volcanic planet of Mustafar between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars Episode III - Revenge of the Sith…
This battle scene we used the following LittleBits to animate the scene and for the game control of the Spinjitzu characters.
3 Power Supply
1 USB Power Supply
1 MP3 Placer
3 Dimmers (or potentiometer)
1 Wireless Transmitter and 1 Reciever
1 Bright LED
1 Synth Speaker
2 DC Motors
This piece was developed in 10 hours total from start to finish.
We reused a shoe box for the setting and made cuts/ports necessary for the Lego gears to connect to the Ninjago Spinjitzu pieces that we hacked. Then we connected the Lego gears to the DC motors that had wired connecting to their respective dimmers which were connected to their own power source.
The music, lighting and animated lava scene was button activated using the wireless transmitter. The button had it’s own power supply and the bright led, servo (for the animated lava) and music all shared a USB power source since we were trying to animate and synch all three together.
In the end - we came up with this interactive game which we hope you all have enjoyed.
