TABC Engineering Hacks Google Chrome Game

Students in Rabbi Aryeh Tiefenbrunn’s 10th grade Applied Engineering class used what they have learned about servo motors and light sensors to create a device that can automatically play the famous Google Chrome dinosaur game. The boys worked hard to calibrate their light sensors to detect the difference between the white background and the dark pixels that make up the obstacles in the game and program a servo motor to react by clicking the spacebar to make the dino jump. They quickly discovered that timing is everything! By tweaking different variables, both in the code and in the physical positioning of their sensor and motor, the boys excitedly competed to see whose automated dino player would earn the highest score in the game. Applied Engineering is the second year course in the four-year Engineering Track at TABC.
