Super 8 magic 8 ball


Project description:


The super 8 was created to put a modern spin on the classic children's toy "Magic 8 Ball". The classic
version, enjoyed by many for the last fifty years, used a twenty sided die, inscribed with variations of yes and
no answers, to demystify the future. Okay, maybe not. However, it was a fun novelty. The Super 8 will carry many
of the same aesthetics as the original, but be gutted and replaced with a digital system. The Super 8 will use
an accelerometer to recognize the familiar feel of shaking the 8 ball, and use an LCD, in place of the inscribed
die, to display the fortunes of the future, so long as details are not required.
