Life meter gives a real life measure of video game health
Postado originalmente em Hack a Day:
This hack makes the virtual real by displaying your video game character’s health meter as a column of illuminated water.
The build video, which you’ll find embedded after the break, is really quite remarkable. The column is a clear piece of pipe anchored at one end by hand-tightened plumbing drain fittings. This allows [Bfayer] to attach a flexible bladder which he constructed for the project. An actuator pushes a hinged board up against the bladder to raise and lower the water level in the tube.
