Tinfoil Gameboard, Makey Makey, and Scratch Resources

Resources for Tinfoil Game Board using a MakeyMakey and Scratch

I started this project with my classmate M Palladino for our NYU board game design class. We set out to create a game that you could play blind. Our first version of this project used a (relatively) simple circuit board cut on a vinyl cutter with tinfoil and used scratch for the programming. Our final version of this project ended up using a very complicated circuit board and the Unity gaming program instead of scratch. Although our final version went into a different direction we wanted to share the resources from the first version of the project.

Some people know me as Dan Keplinger, others as King Gimp, but they both stand for loyalty, honesty and a fighting spirit. I was born with Cerebral Palsy on January 19, 1973. My formal education started when I entered early intervention at eighteen months of age and continued in special education until I was mainstreamed at the age of sixteen. It was then that I discovered my artistic talent. The finale to my formal education was obtaining my MFA at the age of thirty-five.
