Create your Operation game with an Arduino board

Operation Game

Many of you surely who have played Operation game when you were little A classic game that is also very easy to play. We just have to make a circuit with light bulbs and cover the pieces or "bones" with aluminum foil to make contact in case of mistakes.

This game is easy to play without the need for great knowledge in electronics, but thanks to Free Hardware, it is also very easy to improve. Thanks to a board like Arduino, anyone can build an improved version of Operation.

Arduino Nano can improve the game Operation although without it it can work perfectly

A user named TrevorB23 has created an improved version of this classic game. This version has been called Hurry, Doctor! a version containing Arduino Nano to add new functions to this game. Among these functions is adding time to perform the "operation" or indicating which bone to operate at random. In addition, in this version, the Lego pieces help to recreate the operating room and the parts of the patient that must be operated during the game. In addition, thanks to an LCD screen, we can know which bones we have to operate or simply set a time to perform the aforementioned operation.

In total, the list of materials to build this version of the game is extensive but affordable for all budgets. The construction guide has been published in Instructables, so anyone can build this version and get the code to insert into the Arduino Nano board with its functions.

Arduino Nano significantly improves the operation of this game, but it is true that we can do without this plate to have an entertaining version of Operation. At least, that's how it seems to me, although if we have an Arduino Nano board, it's worth testing the project and then choosing which version suits us the most.
