Taking part in Snake On A PCB!

(*12*)When dialog turns to the older Nokia cellphones, it’s not going to be the lengthy battery lifestyles or talent to conjure a sign out of skinny air that tickles other folks’s reminiscence, as an alternative it’s the Snake sport constructed into the inventory firmware. Snake was once an addictive but very simple sport during which a line of pixels — the snake in query — was once navigated across the display to devour the fruit with out crashing into partitions or itself. As the sport improved the snake grew in duration, making it a shockingly tricky problem. When you hanker for Snake, as [VK5HSE ] writes, you’ll now play it in a PCB format.

(*12*)(*1*)The instrument in query is PCB-RND, a cross-platform open-source PCB CAD instrument, and the sport is completed in the course of the magic of consumer scripting. Merely download the script, run it for your favorite circuit board, and away you pass!

(*12*)We will’t believe a productive use for this piece of instrument, however it wouldn’t wonder us to look a snake slithering into a couple of forums we stock. It does supply a to hand reminder regardless that of the ability for your PCB CAD instrument’s scripting options, one thing it’s most likely no longer many people use to their complete doable.

(*12*)We’ve featured [VK5HSE]’s paintings with PCB-RND earlier than, in an overly helpful Eagle import instrument.
