Motorised Connect 4 game using a Raspberry Pi

David Pride decided he wanted to hack something both fun and complicated and so decided to build a motorised Connect 4 game. Called 4-Bot, the project allows a human player to play the Raspberry Pi at the popular game. The Pi works out what move to make based on image recognition and the mechanism is activated to pick-and-place a playing piece into the board. The mechanism is part-knackered 3D printer parts and part-MeArm. You can read about the build on David’s website and see it in action in the video below. David brought the game along with him to the Big Birthday Weekend and one of my highlights of the Sunday was to play the game. It beat me. I am so ashamed! 😉
