All you freshmen out there! Yes, you! Just got into campus and want to show your innovation? Hands itching for something to do, to get away from the drab that is MTH101? Then you are at the right place. Electronics Club brings you Electrovate, a circuit design competition for all the innovative freshmen out there! Pit your heads together and slug it out to make something you probably never even dreamed of! So without further ado, let the rules of the game be narrated :
Note : If you missed the lecture and still want to participate, you can find the event lecture, basic ICs tutorial, and all other resources in the Electronics Club Website http://students.iitk.ac.in/eclub/database.php
The basic problem statement is to create a roulette of a minimum of 4 LEDs.
A roulette is a game in which each LED blinks in sequential manner as shown in the above figure.
Various additional features can be added to the basic problem statement like :
- Varying the speed of the roulette.
- Reversal in the direction of roulette after one revolution.
- A train of 2 LED revolving, instead of one.
These are just guidelines. Of course, you're welcome to come up with your own, even wackier feature if you can (with a little thought on how you're going to go about it). Remember, innovation is the key here - the "fresher" the idea, the better (pun intended).
