Drunken NES: A NES Breathalyzer Game

Once electrical engineer Adam/Batsly Adams found out that a ROM coupled with a alcohol sensor can detect the level of alcohol on a person’s breath, he set out to make a playable NES game based upon his findings. From his blog:

So about DrunkenNES. I had recently done a workshop for 8static and bought a bunch of sensors to show the basics of physical computing. I came across an alcohol sensor and thought it would be fun to play with. I hooked it up to a scope and showed it to a couple of friends I had over. A couple of hours later we had a ROM with the sound pitching up as it detected more alcohol – which we really couldn’t stop laughing about.

Congrats to Andy for creating this wildly inventive game!
