Achievement of BUBT students in modernising a popular game
A group of talented young students from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) at Bangladesh University of Business and Technology (BUBT) recently developed a hardware version of the popular game "Tic-Tac-Toe".
The project has gained popularity among BUBT students as a source of fun and entertainment. Despite the game's widespread familiarity, the transition to its digital version presented various software and hardware challenges. The project was led by Team Error from BUBT, and the successful implementation involved intricate circuit construction, microcontroller programming, and PCB design. The team members responsible for this achievement were Md. Sahadat Hossain Sani, Wahidur Rahman Easin, Md. Arif Hasan Masum and Md. Ibrahim Shikder Mahin, with coordination and technical support provided by Mohammed Radoan, a lecturer in the same department. The project was supervised by Dr Md. Shamsul Arefin, Assistant Professor, EEE Department, BUBT.
Regarding the game, the team explained that the game offers two main modes –single-player and multiplayer. In single-player mode, one can compete against artificial intelligence, while multiplayer mode allows two players to play together. Touch sensors are used for input, and an Arduino Mega chip controls the entire game. The design incorporates multiple PCBs to facilitate future development and simplify troubleshooting.
One of the team's objectives is to combine the nostalgia of classic games with modern technology. BUBT has committed to provide financial and other supports for the team's other ongoing projects.
