DIY Pacman Workshop @ Future Everything

MzTEK is coming to Manchester!  We are excited to be partnering with our old friends SPACE to run our DIY PACMAN workshop in this years Future Everything Festival of Art, Music and Culture.

We will be participating in the festival as part of the Handmade, digital craft fair taking place in Manchester’s Victoria Baths.

The Workshop: DIY PACMAN

Create LED light patterns for your own PACMAN game whilst learning how to use the basic electronic components (switch, potentiometer, resistor, capacitor etc) and introduce how to control a micro-controller, Atmega 168 using the open-source Arduino software.

In this workshop you will create your own lighting patterns, such as texts and images and also develop a simple game, using a bespoke pre-designed led-matrix circuit.
