Crafts: Mechanical Donkey Kong


"Mechanical Donkey Kong" by Martin Raynsford

Controlled by Arduino, Martin’s lasercut-wooden arcade is operated the good ol’ fashioned way, a NES controller. One press of a button has Mario doing what he do best: jumping over launched projectiles (or ball bearings, in this case).







Built as part of a larger project this was my first attempt at a mechanical version of Donkey Kong. Time constraints meant I had to drop the XY CNC controller but hopefully explains why this is only V1.
