Items used in this project
After seeing a few extremely difficult projects involving automating games, I thought I'd try to make an easier and unobtrusive version using Arduino and tools on hand!Concept, Build, and Demonstration Video
The device uses a stepper motor, motor driver, limit switch, rotary encoder, and OLED display.
When turning on the cups run through a homing sequence to find the limits of the AL2020 rail it slides on. Afterwards, you are able to select your difficulty 1 - 10 and start the motor through the menu displayed on the OLED screen.
The table is made from a sheet of 3/4" plywood and some 2"x2" used as legs. It also uses 1/4" thick acrylic at the ends to show the mechanism below the table, while keeping the entire top of the table flush and flat. Thus, you can use the table as a normal beerpong table, or as the automated version if supplied with power!
