Process of the project



The structure of this game is straight forward. As hard as you hit, it changes the color of the belt like an actual karate.



Depending on how users hit the cube, the color of belt is changed.



Karate blocks are displayed on the cube itself.



Documentation of the project



Process of how we assemble the cube.

The bodyweight keeps the cube in place when hitting and we sewed a robe for two cubes so that they can be transformed and standing on top of each other (for adults) or next to each other (so that the height suits to the kids). The fabric sewed with conductive thread from on both and opposite sides of the foam that works exactly same as FSR.
