Mario Reduced To 8x8 With Open Source and Arduino

Hardware Hacking 94

adeelarshad82 writes "The open-source Arduino electronics platform has received a ton of attention from the hardware enthusiast community. And one more follower is joining the fray — Mario himself. The mustachioed plumber of console video game fame has been converted into an eight-by-eight LED matrix by Carnegie Mellon University student Chloe Fan. However, the game isn't quite the Mario you know from your legacy Nintendo Entertainment System. For starters, it's just lights. While one often sees the game's LED-backed grid used in devices like the open-source Monome, where it can function as a push-button toggle for music beats and effects, Fan's version of Mario uses the grid as a display only. Mario — or rather, a one-light representation of the game's hero — is controlled NES-style through the use of two buttons. One button makes Mario move forward; the other makes him leap into the air."

bitrex (859228) | more than 4 years ago | (#31481368)

The ATMega328 only has 2KB of RAM - the 32KB is its Flash storage which holds program data since the microcontroller is Harvard architecture. The NES had 2KB plus 2KB of video RAM, plus RAM for the sprites. Even with the ATMega's higher clock rate I think replicating the performance of the 6502 in a video game system with it would be a challenge.

It's replicating the performance of the NES, but it's using an ATMega644 with twice the memory of the 328 and overclocked to nearly 30 MHz.

Re:It's been done before. (1)

Yvan256 (722131) | more than 4 years ago | (#31497208)

To be fair, the NES doesn't have to compute its audio nor its video signals in real-time. And the ATmega644 only has 4KB of RAM, the 64KB of flash memory is for code only.

Other than the music, there's nothing on the game to make it "Super Mario Bros.". The player character runs and jumps over generic obstacles without making any use of SMB physics or any other distinctive elements. If anything it's closer to Pitfall.
Then again, "8x8 platformer created with Arduino" wouldn't attract as much publicity.

There's no need for the (n?).

The word starts with a consonant, and just because Americans seemingly can't pronounce the letter H, doesn't mean you have to lower yourself also.

A Homage, not Anomage. Your children will thank you.

Re:Not Super Mario Bros. (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#31481116)

"a" or "an" depends on pronunciation, not spelling. And both "HOM-age" and "OM-age" are valid pronunciations. And silent h is a British thing, so I don't know what you're talking about.

Re:Not Super Mario Bros. (1)

Mr. Slippery (47854) | more than 4 years ago | (#31481638)

There's no need for the (n?). The word starts with a consonant, and just because Americans seemingly can't pronounce the letter H, doesn't mean you have to lower yourself also.

The "h" in "homage" is silent in the preferred pronunciation [merriam-webster.com] . So if you're using the preferred pronunciation it's "an homage", just like "an hour"; but if you're using some dialect where the h is pronounced, "a homage" would be correct.

So either could be ok here, but I have a strong urge to punch people who say "an historic occasion" or "an hallucination". These are just wrong, unless you are a Cockney aitch-dropper. Such bad grammar does not leave me an happy camper.

It's a simple rule: "an" before vowel sounds, "a" before consonants [quickanddirtytips.com] . The "n" in "an" is exactly there to hold vowels apart; if you don't have adjacent vowels (sounds, not symbols) in your phrase, it's redundant.

Re:Not Super Mario Bros. (0)

Both "a homage" and "an homage" are acceptable. "An homage" is antiquated but still proper English.

It's cute, but not terribly impressive. There's only rudimentary scrolling of a map that is entirely hard-coded, no movement other than the blocks representing the world and the player itself (which is locked to a specific column that can only decrease). It might be a bit more of a technological achievement if the music was coming from the same board, but it's a totally separate, single purpose board.

I don't understand the pertinence or relevance of open source hardware. When you purchase electronic components, you pay for the licensing costs of these components as part of the purchase price (in this case Atmel). What you do with these components, especially if you wish to market your product, is still subject to existing or prior patents - for example the plant hydrometer from TFA. I must be missing something so thank you for enlightening me.

From my pov, it went from "did not know it existed" to "why is everyone so excited" pretty much over night. I don't get it and would appreciate it if anyone told me why this particular bit of hardware hit home so hardly.

Because when I was in EE classes in college it took weeks (probably faster for someone who knows what they were doing) to build up projects using ICs and little microcontrollers. The microcontrollers also had to be programmed with a UV eraser and reprogrammer, which required having a printout of the machine code in hex, and typing it all by hand into an eeprom programmer.

Now with the Adruino, you get a USB interface to a very cool little chip that you can upload C code on to. There's also bunches of modules (shields) that you can link together to create your project. Ethernet modules, wireless modules, input device modules, output device modules (led/lcd screens). All these boards can work together in harmony... versus building all this stuff from scratch with the basic components. They are also quite cheap compared to what it would cost to build from scratch.

Re:What's it with Arduino, anyway? (1)

dissy (172727) | more than 4 years ago | (#31481642)

I share the GPs opinion, just for different reasons.

The Arduino is a good decade behind the times as far as all the features you list.
It's hard to get excited about a product that does what a lot of us in the micro controller field have been doing back in the early 90s using PIC and basic stamps and SX chips and the like.

Full micro controller hardware on one chip (CPU, ram, flash, timers and clocks, interrupts, and external hardware modules made just for the chips packaging)

While the PIC is a poor example (Many shortcomings that are addressed by devices like the basic stamp, SX, and arduino products), all can be programmed in a high level compiled language (typically more than one language to choose from), or even directly in assembly, depending on your project needs.

To me it isn't a big deal, but not because of lack of interest or dislike of the concepts it brings, just that we've been doing all this for over 10 years already and there are almost no improvements that Arduino brings to the table right at the moment, although it seems cost will be a major selling point soon, as they are already price competitive and still dropping.

introspekt.i (1233118) | more than 4 years ago | (#31482192)

It's a platform for hobbyists and kids, not for those in industry, clearly. The learning curve is incredibly shallow for people who have no experience with this stuff. For many, it's a great starting point.

Re:What's it with Arduino, anyway? (1)

KenSeymour (81018) | more than 4 years ago | (#31486534)

It may be no big deal to someone who has been working in embedded systems for a while, but it lowers
the barrier of entry for the rest of us.

I am just starting to get into micro controllers. At work, I have worked on PIC18 and PIC24.
For either of those two, you need an ICD 2 or ICD3 to get your code into them. That will set you
back a good $200. Alternatively, you can find a board with a serial boot loader. Then there
is the C compiler. The unrestricted one will set you back another $500.

By contrast, the Arduino board costs about $35. It can be programmed with a USB cable. The IDE
environment can be downloaded free. Your grand total to play around with micro controllers, about $45.

Another difference is the Arduino programming environment hides lots of details like fuses and clock
speeds and such. I found it quite difficult to get a PIC18 serial port working without getting out
an oscilloscope to actually measure the baud rate coming out of the UART because careful reading
of the data sheets and reviewing the CPU clock configuration didn't get me to 9600 baud.

After fighting the PIC all day for pay, when I get home and I just want to get my robot project working,
it is nice to have the simple Arduino environment to interact with instead. Apart from kits for hobbyists,
I am unaware of commercial applications for Arduinos. But there is more to life than work.

To get an idea of how much fun people have with Arduinos, do a youtube search for Arduino.

Re:What's it with Arduino, anyway? (1)

cecom (698048) | more than 4 years ago | (#31486512)

The rest of your post notwithstanding, the beginning is seriously misleading. Surely if you had a printout of the machine code, you also had another way of transfering it to the eprom programmer, like a serial cable. I have developed a few projects like that back in the day - no debuggers, you had to pipeline eprom erasing and programming to save time, etc, but it wasn't nearly as hard as you make it to be.

Hardly.

Now "Kamikaze Ducks" impressed me. BASIC source (in some old old computer hobbyist magazine back around 1982 or so), which I ported to every computer (from DEC mainframe to Commodore 64) I had access to.

But a single pixel "jumping" up and down, a static "terrain" (e.g., blocks) that can move left to right?

And this girl's in college?

If she were 9, I'd be impressed.

I've always thought this game (and space invaders!) would translate pretty well to an 8-dot refreshable braille display (like this one [synapseadaptive.com] .) Yes, there would be some awkward gameplay questions, like how does the user keep track of the whole board, but come on -- it's not like there's a lot of other game options for this platform.

Because let's be honest: with a game you can win my just repeatedly jamming the buttons for hours on end, it's not like screen resolution matters.

I get the same thing from Tekken or Street Fighter. Granted, the buttons have to stand up to me palming all 6 of them repeatedly with a lot of intensity.
