Today, I brought in a simple prototype for some goggles that can control the direction of the mouse by moving the head. I built a simple game in Game Maker whereby you avoid bad guys chasing you and collect coins. The goggles cost £1.29, two infrared LEDs, 180 ohm resistor, 9v battery clip and 9v battery. Approx £5.00 in total. Really good fun.
The goggles worked great and I think this is something we will explore more later in the year with 3D environments, sadly for some reason it just wouldn't work with Minecraft though.
Next week will be even more relaxed as we will simply be having a gaming competition/xmas party, so lots of cake and games :)
