Pi Noon Practice

IMG_0934

Last year we didn’t do very well in Pi Noon as we were knocked out in the second round.  We decided to try to improve that this year.

To that end we have developed a “Pi Noon Simulator”.  The cylinder at the top bends when pressed and makes a connection.  This lights an LED via a pulse stretcher which counts as a “POP”.

We’ve got one unit mounted on last year’s PiDrogen and another mounted on our new mecanum test chassis.  We can now have unlimited games of Pi Noon without going through a shed load of balloons.

This really is a lot of fun!
