Tilt-2-Win was the coffee fueled frantic result of a 24 hours hack-a-thon at Microsoft. Teams were given just over a day to create and design any project of their choosing. My roommates and I teamed up and put together a quick tilting maze game that was controlled with a phone. The entire mechanical assembly was made with foam board, a few laser cut pieces and spare office supply equipment. The heart of the system was an Arduino board that connected to an Android cellphone via Bluetooth. In the end this project took first place overall and first place in the hardware division! This project has now been featured on HackADay as well as some local Waterloo newspapers.
