Steve had worked on the the original Ping Pong
project and although the original Ping Pong
paddles were great and all, there were
1. Wires were too long
2. Ping Pong is played all over the room
3. Computer has to be configured to
4. A sound box is needed for each paddle
5. Hard to change sounds
This is a flash re-presentation of how it our
paddles will work.
Ping Pong Remix : Wireless
Solution: Wireless Paddles!
In order to make our ping pong to work wirelessly, we
have decided to use plain old Radio Frequency (RF) Serial
Communication. RF transmitters sends bits on pulses of
radio energy, and what attracted us to RF frequency is it’s
flexibility. RF unlike Infrared serial is omnidirectional
and can go greater distances, even through walls. This
makes it great for our ping pong application
In order to differentiate the signal from ambient radio or
light waves, the data is sent on carrier wave. Actual
information is encoded by slightly varying the frequency
of the carrier wave (FM) or signal strength (AM).
What we are using for our paddles are the
Laipac Transmiter & Reciever
What we used:
PIEZO BUZZER: Red is to Power
Blue is to Analog
Black is to Ground
Peizo is glued under the rubber on the
Paddle using Gorilla Glue
We redid the paddles.
Rubber on the paddles were stripped open as well as
the wood on the handles.
Peizo buzzers were soldered
Hole was cut in the middle of the handles to fit
in the wires that were soldered to the peizo
Piezo Buzzer is placed under the rubber of the
ping pong paddles
Buzzered paddles are clamped down and left to dry overnight.
Reciever box was re-designed
Transcievers are now placed in a little pouch.
