AWW Shucks! game board

Description

This was a fun project where I was given a new inovative material and required to design a product using it. The material I got was damping rubber which is a material that shares all the same characteristics as regular rubber but does not bounce. The product I chose to create was a game board similiar to the ones used in bean bag toss. There is a motorized wheel with patches of damping rubber on it. When a ball is thrown through the holes if it hits right as a pad of damping rubber crosses the hole the ball will hit, not bounce, and fall straight down awarding points. However, if the ball hits a spot not covered in damping rubber it has a very high chance of bouncing back out of the hole awarding no points. The speed of the disk can be changed to create an easier or more challenging game.
