‘Hunt the Wumpus’ RoboBrrds!

Two RoboBrrds with a BIG adventure ahead of them!

The goal with these RoboBrrds is to have them play Hunt the Wumpus using GPS coordinates.

Hunt the Wumpus is an early video game, based on a simple hide and seek format featuring a mysterious monster (the Wumpus) that lurks deep inside a network of rooms. (from Wikipedia)

The idea is to modify the game into ‘Find the RoboBrrd’, changing the bats into flapping wings, the wumpus into moving beak, and more. The Brrds are equipped with a stand, a GPS, a LCD to display text, and of course LOTS of colourful feathers.

Jac Goudsmit has been helping his grandkids along with building the RoboBrrds, and they did all of the building, soldering, and decorating! Definitely deserving of a RoboBrrd-round-of-applause!

You can follow more of their RoboBrrd adventures on Jac’s Google+ here, check it out!

  1. Thanks for the shout-out!

    There are no plans to create a version of Hunt the Wumpus with the GPS receiver, but they do have one of those (each) for other purposes. For now, I just use them to keep track of time but in the future after I add XBee modules, I may do a hide-and-seek game or something. All they do right now is the Hunt The Wumpus game.

    See my Github pages for the code I wrote so far.
