If you’ve watched the video above, you’ll be thinking “this is just air hockey with a soccer ball puck” and you’d be right in essence. But this one uses an Arduino and some 3D printing:
If you are an American, you’d probably think of Silas Hansen’s project as “air soccer” but most people will prefer air football. Either way, it is like air hockey but more of a football field feel. The project looks great — if you saw this on the shelves of the local toy store, you wouldn’t think anything of it. You can see a video of the game in action, below.
Unsurprisingly, the brains of the game are an Arduino. The case looks good thanks to laser cutting and 3D printing. A Roland printer produced the stickers that really dress the case up, but you could find another artistic way to do the decoration.
